As the number of people who have suffered side effects after taking Actos increases, federal judges have consolidated all of the pending and future lawsuits into a Multi-District Actos Litigation court located in the state of Louisiana. Unfortunately, experts believe as many as 10,000 people may eventually file a claim.
The FDA, French Medicines Agency, European Medicines Agency and American Heart Association have warned that long-term use of the diabetes drug Actos can increase the risk of bladder cancer, heart attacks and liver damage.
The warnings came after research showed the drug could raise bladder cancer risks by as much as 40% and heart attack risks even more.
According to estimates by the Food and Drug Administration, nearly 10 million people have taken Actos in the United States since it was released in 1999. Experts fear that thousands may have suffered a severe condition like this from the drug.
