Exclamation Actos users may have suffered from serious side effects

Hi, I am Sonja from Sokolove Law. I'm part of our medical rights group that works on pharmaceutical drug claims. We have been reviewing thousands of potential claims where people who were prescribed Actos to treat Type II Diabetes may have experienced serious side effects. One of the more serious Actos side effects that some users have experienced has been an increased risk of developing bladder cancer.

Following a five-year analysis of the drug by its manufacturer, Takeda Pharmaceuticals, The FDA recently announced a warning that users who have taken high amounts of the drug for longer periods of time had a higher risk of developing Actos side effects that eventually led to a bladder cancer diagnosis.

Also, we have also seen that some Actos users faced problems related to cardiovascular side effects. Some of the known issues include Congestive Heart Failure and Vision Loss.

For folks interested in learning more about Actos and some of the side effects that may have affected you or someone you love, there is great information available at <http://awe.sm/5gzrH >. You can call our office toll free at 800-568-1838 to learn about your options and receive a free legal consultation.
