Actos® Heart Attack Lawyers
Actos® is a drug prescribed to treat Type 2 Diabetes. It is taken once daily and controls blood sugar levels by increasing the body's sensitivity to the hormone insulin, which helps cells use blood sugar for energy.
Actos® and a similar diabetes drug, Avandia®, have been linked to severe, life-threatening heart problems. According to the American Heart Association, a new study found that Actos® and Avandia® users were at an increased risk of suffering from heart attack, heart failure, and death.
Actos® Users at Increased Cardiovascular Risk
According to a study published in the American Heart Association journal Circulation: Cardiovascular Quality and Outcomes, more than 28,000 diabetes patients were studied over a 33 month period. The results showed an alarming incidence of heart problems - some of which were fatal - in patients taking Actos®.
The makers of Actos® have agreed to a settlement of $2.3 billion. If you or a loved one took Actos® and had a heart attack, stroke or death, call us to see if you can be included in the Actos® settlement.
