As news spreads about the danger of side effects from the diabetes drug Actos, more patients are finding that their bladder cancer, heart attack or liver damage might be related to the drug. In most cases, people were not warned of the safety risks by the drug maker.
Thousands of people who suffered a disease after taking Actos have already filed a claim, hoping to take part in an Actos settlement in the coming years. Legal experts predict thousands more will eventually file a lawsuit. However, it is important to speak with an attorney as soon as possible as time is limited.
The FDA ordered testing of Actos years ago after concerns were raised about higher than normal occurrences of bladder cancer. Now, studies by the French Medicines Agency have shown it may actually increase the risk by up to 40%. The American Heart Association and other researchers have also warned of the risk for heart attacks and liver damage.
Since nearly 10 million people have taken Actos since it was released in 1999, experts fear that thousands may have suffered severe side effects such as these without knowing that the drug is the cause or that an Actos settlement may be available.
If you have suffered from a heart attack, liver damage or bladder cancer after taking Actos you should learn your legal options as soon as possible. An attorney can help you file a claim for substantial compensation. However, the time is limited.
Millions of people switched to Actos for treatment of their diabetes thinking it was a safer alternative after warnings surfaced in 2007 about rival drug Avandia. However, it now appears Actos may have even more severe side effects.
These side effects can be as minor as a mild heart attack which is treated with medication or as serious as a progressive and potentially fatal disease like bladder cancer.
Either way, you and your loved ones should not face the pain, suffering, medical costs or lost time from these conditions without compensation from the company that made the defective drug and failed to warn of its dangers. An Actos settlement can help you and your family recover.
Reports indicate Takeda Pharmaceuticals may face as many as 10,000 lawsuits from people who suffered a side effect from taking Actos. Experts believe they may at some point pursue an Actos settlement instead of taking every one of these cases to trial.
