Actos Use and Bladder Cancer

Many Columbus drug recall attorneys issued advertisements about Actos (pioglitazone) after the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's June 2011 warning alerted consumers about the diabetes medication's likely link to bladder cancer.

But how many lawyers in Columbus have the resources, reputation and experience of Elk & Elk? Not many, if any.

Our experience is especially valuable when dealing with a drug like Actos, about which the FDA warned consumers after the release of a five-year progress report from a continuing study by the drug's manufacturer, Takeda Pharmaceuticals. According to the FDA, the study drew a connection between long-term use of Actos and bladder cancer.

Our attorneys are ready, willing and able to help if you or someone you know has experienced any of these potential signs of cancer while taking Actos:

  • Blood in the urine, which may appear rusty or dark red
  • Pain during urination
  • Frequent urination
  • Feeling the need to urinate without results
  • Feeling the need to strain (bear down) when you empty your bladder
