ACTOS Lawyers Fighting for Patients’ Rights, Wellbeing
Believe it or not, a drug can be approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and still have undisclosed side effects.
A recent example is the popular diabetes drug ACTOS. In a one-two punch to millions of Type 2 diabetes patients:
- The FDA has announced that ACTOS may be associated with an increased risk of bladder cancer; and
- The American Diabetes Association presented a study linking ACTOS with an eye disease that can lead to blindness.
These findings are in addition to older safety concerns about the drug’s link to:
- Heart attacks;
- Liver failure; and
- Other serious harm.
