The popular diabetes drug Actos has been connected to bladder cancer. Takeda Pharmaceuticals, the manufacturer of Actos, knew that this drug had serious side effects but it never made that information public. As a result, lawsuits against Actos are now happening. Drug makers are responsible for the drugs that they market and sell. When these pharmaceutical companies choose profits over people, they need to be held accountable for the their actions.
Taking a drug to market even though it has dangerous side effects should never happen.

More About Actos
Actos (Pioglitazone HCL) has been prescribed those who suffer from diabetes as a way to control blood sugar in the body. It may work better than some other drugs, but would anyone be taking this drug if they properly warned about the risk of bladder cancer? Most likely not. Some of the other side effects of Actos include:
- Heart failure
- Liver problems
- Visual changes or loss of vision
- Blood vessel problems
- Lactic acidosis
- Broken bones
