Does Actos Cause Bladder Cancer?


The popular diabetes drug Actos® (pioglitazone), which is marketed as Actos, Actoplus Met, and Duetact, has been linked with an increased risk of bladder cancer. Actos is manufactured and sold by Takeda Pharmaceuticals.

People who have taken Actos and suffered from bladder cancer or experience bladder cancer symptoms (blood in urine with or without pain, painful sides/flanks, distended bladder, etc.), should contact a doctor immediately. You might also have a legal claim.

The Spangenberg Law Firm is pursuing investigations for people who have taken a diabetes drug like Actos and suffered from bladder cancer. Currently, there are at least a dozen Actos lawsuits pending. This is not a situation in which you should delay, either. Each state has a “statute of limitations” period in which you must file a lawsuit, or you will not be allowed to pursue your claim.

Because the Actos manufacturer may have failed to adequately warn of these risks, or design a safe product, you may be entitled to compensation if you have been diagnosed with bladder cancer or a cancerous bladder tumor.

An experienced Actos lawyer like those at the Spangenberg Law Firm (toll free: 1-877-696-3303) can help you determine whether you have a case, the statute of limitations time left, and answer any question you might have about the process. Because we work on a contingency fee basis, there is no cost to you to pursue a claim. Rather, our payment and the case expenses only come out of a recovery, and there is never an out-of-pocket cost to you.

To have a potential bladder cancer lawsuit reviewed by one of our Actos lawyers, request a free consultation and claim evaluation by going to http://actos-bladder-cancer-lawyers.com or calling us toll free at 1-877-696-3303.

    It’s awful what is happening with Actos users. The FDA needs to pull this from the shelf now.

    Thanks for commenting David and Roberto.

    David, so sorry to hear about your diagnosis; that must be very difficult. I suggest you speak with an attorney soon. You can contact us at 877-696-3303 for a free case review, and I’m sure there are other attorneys handling these cases as well. There is a limited time for filing claims, based on your state’s law, and an attorney can help you with that.

    Best of luck.

    My Father is 86 now, and almost two years ago was diagnosed with a Cancerous Bladder Tumor the size of a golf ball. It truly was terrible on him with his age, surgery and treatments. He has been in reminsion but still takes Actos. He has been on Actos for approximately 15 years. I need to know what is the time frame to seek legal councel and action for the State of Ohio. Thanks for your time and help.

    Thank you for your comment and sharing your experience. I am sending you a private email to answer your questions. You can also give me a call at 877-696-3303 to discuss the case in more detail. The short answer is that time is of the essence, but until I review the specific facts of the potential claim with you, an exact date is impossible to calculate.
