In June 2011, the FDA released a safety alert announcing that the use of Actos for more than one year is linked to a 40 percent increased risk of bladder cancer – a side effect of which Actos users were never warned. Due to this lack of communication from Actos manufacturer Takeda Pharmaceuticals, many Actos consumers have developed serious and potentially fatal bladder cancer and are filing Actos lawsuits.
Lawsuits Filed Against Negligent Drug Company
Actos lawsuits have already been filed against Takeda, as well as Actos marketer Eli Lilly, and thousands more are expected to follow. These lawsuits cannot reverse a bladder cancer diagnosis, but they will provide compensation for the medical costs, loss of income, and pain and suffering of Actos victims.
