Sales Down Thanks to Actos Bladder Cancer Publicity
By John Curran
As new drugs come into the market, pharmaceutical companies struggle to gain a foothold. Takeda Pharmaceuticals is facing this over its current diabetes drug Acots, as well as the generic version of its Type 2 diabetes treatment drug coming onto the market. However, the company may try to find other revenue streams. Actos (pioglitazone) bladder cancer risks are already driving sales down
It has had an FDA "black box" warning listed on the prescription for five years now. Actos bladder cancer risks dominate the warning, but pioglitazone congestive heart failure risks are also notable. In woman, it is more likely to cause Actos bone fracture conditions, forcing them to consider increased calcium through supplements or other options. These warnings are turning patients off to the medication.
While there are other drugs that can reduce blood sugar on the market, the FDA has ignored the frequent filing of cases by Actos bladder cancer class action lawsuit attorneys. This comes in contrast to France, which like other European Union countries has shown a willingness to ban unsafe medications with nasty side effects. The FDA finally noted last year that Actos bladder cancer risks are much higher than average, up to two or three times more common.
When one considers this, along with pioglitazone congestive heart failure risks, it becomes unclear why patients would not be extra cautious. Those who also have a medical history or genetic background for osteoporosis are in the same boat. Thanks to the prevalence of Type 2 diabetes in the U.S. population, there will continue to be a number of options available to Americans, many of which are safer.
