Actos is a widely prescribed diabetes drug that has been shown to increase the risk of bladder cancer by as much as 40% when taken for a year or more. Because of the known side effects of Actos, France has banned it and Germany has warned that new patients should not start taking it. In addition, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a warning on June 15, 2011 about the risks of Actos (e.g., bladder cancer). Consumers need to know that even though the FDA has not issued a recall, there are still serious consequences associated with taking this drug, including bladder cancer.
