What are the dangers of Actos?
Actos is a prescription drug that was manufactured by Takeda Pharmaceutical, and it was marketed as a safe treatment for Type 2 diabetes. Takeda Pharmaceutical did not alert patients to the dangers of Actos until very recently, and in some cases, this company may be held responsible for any resulting conditions or illnesses.
Actos was marketed as a “safe alternative” to Avandia, another prescription drug used to treat Type 2 diabetes, but Actos has been shown to be quite dangerous as well. Some of the dangers associated with Actos include:
- Risk for bladder cancer
- Risk for internal organ damage
- Risk for organ failure
These risks are very serious and could affect the rest of your life. If you took Actos to treat your Type 2 diabetes and you now suffer from bladder cancer or another condition, you could be eligible for financial compensation.
You do not have to face the negative effects of Actos alone. Contact the experienced and committed Actos lawsuit attorneys of Williams Kherkher today at 800-641-9810 to discuss your legal options.
