Serious Attorneys for Serious Accidents Injured by a Dangerous Prescription Drug?

Dangerous Drugs: Actos

Have you suffered because of Actos?

Since the 1990s, doctors have used Actos to treat type 2 diabetes. Since then, doctors have linked the drug to cases of life-threatening illness and dangerous side effects. If you or a loved one has suffered because of Actos, contact an attorney from Lauri J. Goldstein & Associates, PLLC as soon as possible; we want to help you get the financial compensation you may deserve.

According to the United States National Library of Medicine (NCBI), Actos is prescribed with proper diet and exercise to treat type 2 Diabetes by increasing the patients' sensitivity to insulin. Generally speaking, Actos is made from a natural substance that helps regulate the body's blood sugar levels.

Adverse Side Effects

Actos is taken in tablet form. Most doctors start patients on a low dose of the drug and then increase the prescription until it is fully effective. According to NCBI, Actos is typically prescribed to treat diabetes but may be used to improve other health conditions, too. Although the medication is designed to lower patients' blood sugar levels, you should understand the symptoms related to low blood sugar and high blood sugar before taking Actos. According to NCBI, Actos may cause headaches, muscle pain, pain in the limbs, and sore throat. These side effects are relatively mild, but Actos can cause serious health complications, too.

For example, patients taking Actos have reported changes in their vision, blindness, difficulty urinating, blood urine and back or abdominal pain. If you experience any of these symptoms, contact your doctor immediately. Additionally, the drug has been known to cause liver problems.

Some patients experienced flu-like symptoms when taking the drug. Clinical studies indicate that patients who take Actos for more than one year are more likely to develop bladder cancer than people who avoided the drug. Women who take Actos are more likely to develop bone fractures and broken bones. This side effect was only observed in women - men were not prone to bone fractures while taking Actos.

Filing a Lawsuit or Claim

Today, hundreds of lawsuits have been filed because of these side effects. Although Actos may effectively treat diabetes, it may do more damage than good. If you have developed any of these adverse side effects, talk you an attorney from Lauri J. Goldstein & Associates, PLLC immediately.
