Actos and Congestive Heart Failure Lawsuit Infomation

When the oral diabetes drug Actos was released to the market in 1999, it was sold as a safer way to lower blood sugar in people with type 2 diabetes and get their condition under control.  However, more than a decade later, thousands of people who have taken the drug have suffered a serious side effect:  congestive heart failure (CHF).

The risk of Actos heart failure has become so prominent that the drug now carries the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) stringent black-box warning, which underscores the significant chance of developing the condition in patients with or without pre-existing heart problems
