Actos, also known as pioglitazone, belongs to a class of drugs called thiazolidinediones (TZD). Actos was introduced in the late 1990s and is used to regulate glucose and insulin levels from those with Type II diabetes.

Symptoms and Side-Effects

Unfortunately, recent studies have shown that patients who took Actos for more than a year may have an increased risk of bladder cancer, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Bladder cancer has one of the highest rate of recurrence of all types of cancer. Almost half of all people diagnosed with bladder cancer will develop the cancer again.


According to a recent Bloomberg Article, Takeda Pharmaceutical Co., the maker of Actos, is offering $2.2 billion to settle claims alleging that the company hid the drug’s cancer risks to patients.
