Actoplus MET Attorney - We Fight for Your Compensation
Actoplus MET and Actoplus MET XR are oral medications used to treat patients with type II diabetes. These drugs are designed to help control blood sugar levels without the use of daily insulin injections. Unfortunately, the pioglitazone found in Actoplus MET and Actoplus MET XR may increase the risk of bladder cancer among users of the drug. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued a safety announcement informing patients and doctors about the increased risk of bladder cancer for people who use the diabetes medication. Contact an aggressive Miami defective drug lawyer if you've been diagnosed with bladder cancer after using Actoplus MET or Actoplus MET XR.
Actoplus MET and bladder cancer - when a lawsuit may be necessary
Actoplus MET and Actoplus MET XR contain pioglitazone, better known as Actos in the United States. Actos has been linked to bladder cancer in numerous studies. Upon an FDA interim review of the drug's epidemiology, the drug's manufacturer, Takeda Pharmaceuticals, issued a bladder cancer warning for Actos. France and Germany stopped sales of Actos after a study in France tied the drug to an increased risk of bladder cancer.
