http://1800theeagle.com/practice-areas/dangerous-drugs/actos/ Hi, I’m Amanda Morales, with the law firm of Goldberg & Osborne. I’m here to talk to you about the prescription drug Actos. Beginning in 1999, doctors began prescribing Actos for some patients to use in their treatment of Diabetes. Recently, certain studies have shown a link between the use of Actos and bladder cancer. June 2011, the FDA issued warnings about increased risk of bladder cancer for people who have been on Actos for more than one year. Common symptoms of bladder cancer include dark urine, frequent urination, urinary tract infections, painful urination, feeling the need but unable to urinate and back and lower abdominal pain. Responding to mounting concerns about the risk of bladder cancer, France suspended the sale of Actos, and Germany asked its doctors to no longer prescribe Actos to new patients. If you have taken Actos and have been diagnosed with bladder cancer, you may be entitled to substantial monetary compensation.
