Actos Drug Injury Lawyer
Have you been prescribed Actos?
Our firm's dangerous drugs attorneys have handled many different pharmaceutical injury and medical injury cases. The diabetes drug Actos, which is distributed by Takeda Pharmaceuticals, has been shown to cause bladder cancer and to do similar damage to the heart as Avandia.
If you or a loved one has taken Actos and suffered bladder cancer or serious heart injury you need experienced personal injury attorneys. Having handled many pharmaceutical cases, our Actos lawsuit attorneys understand the injuries that victims receive and we can immediately set to preparing your case without the need to conduct initial research.
What is Actos?
Actos, which is a product of the pharmaceutical giant Takeda Pharmaceuticals, was the tenth best-selling drug in the United States in 2008, with sales reaching more than $2.4 billion. Many patients who started out on Avandia were switched to Actos believing that it would be safer. Unfortunately for those who took Actos, a study is now showing that it has the same or worse dangers than Avandia. Those who have taken Actos and suffered bladder cancer or heart or other injury as a result of using Actos deserve to be compensated. Our Actos attorneys have the information and experience needed to make sure our clients get the compensation they deserve.
Possible Side-Effects of Actos
A federal whistleblower lawsuit filed by Dr. Helen Ge, a former Takeda Pharmaceuticals employee, ties Actos to suicide, schizophrenia, epilepsy and grand mal seizures. Dr. Ge prepared many of the required FDA safety reports about Actos and states that her pharmaceutical managers continuously hounded her to brush-off reported Actos side effects and to change the reports to make Actos appear better and safer than it actually was. Dr. Ge alleges that Takeda Pharmaceuticals repeatedly obstructed the Actos connection to heart problems and multiple types of cancer.
