Is Actos different from Avandia?
Actos and Avandia are both prescription drugs that are meant to help patients with Type 2 diabetes. Because people with Type 2 diabetes have problems with their insulin, Actos and Avandia are intended to regulate a person’s production of insulin. Unfortunately, these prescription drugs have been found to be harmful to some people with diabetes. Whereas Actos has been associated with the development of bladder cancer, Avandia has been found to cause:
- Heart trauma
- Internal organ damage
All of the potential side effects of these prescription drugs can be hazardous to your health, so if you have diabetes, it is important to be aware of the potential problems with these drugs.
If you or someone you know has diabetes and has taken Actos, resulting in bladder cancer or another ailment, contact the experienced Actos attorneys of Williams Kherkher today by calling 800-641-9810.
