Actos

I have been taking Actos for about 8 years since I was diagnosed T2.
I read today that it is being withdrawn owing to an increase in bladder cancer in those who take it.
Anyone got more info on this?

Re: Actos

There was a recent study out about that problem. Whether it has been recalled or not I'm not sure but I know my sister-in-laws Dr. was going to prescribe it for her and then said no. Best thing to do is ask your Dr. or your local pharmacist, seems my pharmacist knows more then my Dr. at times.

I know recently I asked my Dr. about my BP meds. as they are an ARB and suppose to be linked to cancer. All she told me was.."when we know the results of the study we tell the patients".

Best of wishes...JJ....

Re: Actos

My Actos has just been replaced by Januvia (Sitagliptine).
Can anyone share their experiences with this?
