Actos Lawsuit Lawyer
Actos (Pioglitazone HCL) is a drug that many people took in hopes that it would help with their diabetes disease. However, for some people, taking Actos resulted in a devastating diagnosis of bladder cancer. Houston personal injury lawyer Brian White is familiar with the medical problems caused to trusting consumers by Actos. He has worked with many clients that were harmed because the maker of Actos, Takeda Pharmaceuticals, was negligent in warning consumers about problems they knew were linked to Actos after taking the drug for as little as 12 months.
Attorney White takes every client’s case very seriously, and he understands the personal ramifications of being harmed due to negligence. The impact of product failures or defects can be catastrophic, even resulting in death. Survivors and those harmed by products that deliver less than they promise or that cause bodily injury are entitled to seek monetary compensation for their expenses, injuries and losses.
The firm of Brian White has been committed to winning monetary damage compensation for clients for over a decade in Houston, TX. They work closely with clients, offering a free consultation and not charging a fee unless the personal injury case is won. They are compassionate, understanding, and will work hard to win fairness for injured clients. Actos is a drug that may control blood sugar (glucose) levels in many patients suffering from diabetes. It may work better than some other drugs, but the manufacturer knew but did not publicize possible links between Actos and the development of bladder cancer.
Actos side effects and bladder cancer often leave a patient with a huge amount of medical expenses and unpaid bills, loss of income or employment or in the case of death; survivors suffer financial hardship in addition to loss of their loved one. Attorney Brian White works diligently to provide solutions quickly to clients, often within just one year. An aggressive stance and experience leads to solutions for those who have experienced physical harm from taking Actos for their diabetes condition.

Actos Side Effects
Actos, like many other drugs, may have side effects that are less than desirable. Houston lawyer Brian White is a personal injury trial lawyer that has worked nationwide with clients seeking compensation for their personal injuries due to Actos and other drugs. Side effects can cause even greater harm than the disease for which the drugs were first prescribed. A worst case side effect due to taking Actos is bladder cancer, a life-threatening disease that may cause long-term pain and suffering or death.
What Side Effects are Possible from Actos?
Actos (Pioglitazone HCL) has been prescribed by doctors to help treat adult type 2 diabetes. It works for some people that have had difficulty getting other drugs to control their blood glucose levels. It may, however, interact with other drugs and Actos has known side effects. It may also be mixed with other ingredients including metaformin and glimepiride.
The types of side effects from Actos use include problems that especially affect diabetics, such as weight gain, fluid retention and edema. Some experience symptoms that are like having a cold, with sore throat, headache, pain in the muscles and involvement of the sinuses. Lower gastrointestinal problems may be related to Actos use also, such as nausea and diarrhea. The user may develop a urinary tract infection or limb pain. Nursing mothers should most likely not take Actos because the effect of this drug on their infants is not known. Pregnant women should not take Actos.
What is the Connection between Actos and Bladder Cancer?
Takeda Pharmaceuticals, the manufacturer of Actos, tested the effect of Actos on rats prior to FDA approval of the drug for sale to the public. These tests indicated that the animals developed bladder cancer, but the company neglected to make those results public. The drug sold well and was a major money-maker, so it is alleged this may be one reason why the company did not want this fact publicized. Bladder cancer did develop in many users following just one year of use. Some of those persons have already sued Takeda Pharmaceuticals for physical injury due to Actos.
