Actos And Bladder Cancer

A June 2011 warning issued by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) alerted consumers about the diabetes medication Actos (pioglitazone) being linked to bladder cancer. Following this, multiple Cleveland drug recall attorneys had advertisements out about it. But Elk & Elk’s Actos bladder cancer lawyers in Cleveland have the resources, reputation and experience to get you the results you deserve.

Extensive experience and resources

At Elk & Elk, we are well-positioned to take on Actos bladder cancer cases. Our attorneys have the resources of a law firm that has helped injured people protect their rights for more than 50 years. We’ve handled drug recall cases from acetaminophen to dangerous antidepressants and Vioxx. You would have have a difficult time finding an attorney with such a wide range of experience challenging the manufacturers of dangerous and recalled drugs.

This experience is particularly valuable for Actos. The FDA warned about the drug after a five-year study by the drug’s manufacturer, Takeda Pharmaceuticals, connected long-term use of Actos to bladder cancer. Contact our law firm immediately if you or someone you know has experienced symptoms such as these while taking Actos:

  • Frequent urination
  • Feeling the need to urinate without results
  • Blood in the urine, which may appear rusty or dark red
  • Feeling the need to strain (bear down) when you empty your bladder
  • Pain during urination
