Actoplus Met is an anti-diabetes drug similar to the drug Actos, in that it includes the main ingredient, Pioglitazone. However, Actoplus differs from Actos in that it includes metformin, which is used to control the amount of glucose in the bloodstream. Metformin also increases the body's response to insulin. Actoplus, like Actos, is manufactured by the Japanese pharmaceutical conglomerate Takeda Pharmaceuticals. Although Actoplus Met does seem to aid in the regulation of glucose levels in diabetics, it also has the same serious side effects as Actos does.

The most pernicious of Actoplus side effect may be a greater incidence of bladder cancer, which is an enigmatic and deadly disease. However, like most other drugs, there are a variety of other side effects, which can potentially cause harm to the patients ingesting it. Some symptoms of bladder cancer include frequent urination, bloody urine, and urine leakage. Although bladder cancer is by itself life-threatening, it, like many other cancers, can spread to other parts of the body, causing further complications. If you exhibit these symptoms, we suggest you contact a medical professional. The Actoplus bladder cancer risk is strongly suggested by a variety of studies.

Other side effects associated with Actoplus Met include:

  • Bladder Cancer

  • Myocardial Ischemic Events

  • Dark Urine

  • Fever

  • Congestive Hear Failure

  • Bladder Cancer

  • Shortness of Breath

  • Chest Pain

  • Ill Feeling

  • Nausea

  • Stomach Painkiller

  • Swelling

  • Weight Gain

  • Macular Edema

  • Fractures

  • Liver Problems

  • Hear Attack

Studies have reported that patients taking Actoplus and similar diabetes 2 drugs are at a substantially greater risk of of congestive heart failure, but a lower risk of myocardial ischemic events. Additionally, studies have reported that patients have experienced upper respiratory tract infection, sinusitis, headache, and dental problems.

The risk of bladder cancer is most prevalent in those who have been taking Actoplus for more than a year, but there have been reports of patients developing cancer in less than one year.

Even though Actoplus Met and Actos have so many verified side effects, neither the FDA nor Takeda Pharmaceuticals is willing to recall these drugs. Actos has already been taken off the market in a number of European countries, but it continues to endanger the lives of American diabetics.

If you have been taking Actoplus Met and have experienced serious side effects, you might be eligible for compensation. Contact one of our unsafe drug lawyers today to schedule a free and confidential consultation and take the first step to recovering damages and recovering normalcy in your life.
