Milwaukee Actos Lawyers
Actos (pioglitazone) became the top selling type 2 diabetes drug in 2010. It is often sold in combination with Metfermin (Actoplus Met, Actoplus Met XR) and Duetact (glimepiride). Actos generated $3.5 billion in sales in 2010 for its manufacturer Takeda.
The FDA has issued a warning that just one year of pioglitazone raises the risk of bladder cancer by 40%, although the FDA has not yet pulled it from the market. If you have developed bladder cancer after taking Actos for at least 3 months, you may be entitled to compensation.
Potentially, Actos, ActoPlus Met, ActoPlus Met XR or Duetact users who were diagnosed with bladder cancer may be able to take legal action if the manufacturer failed to properly warn doctors and patients about the possible Actos bladder cancer risk.
More than 3,000 lawsuits have been filed. The first of them recently went to trial and resulted in a $6.5 million dollar verdict. If you have been diagnosed with bladder cancer after taking one of these drugs, contact PKSD today to find out if you can file a claim seeking compensation for medical bills, pain and suffering and other damages.
