I heard that Actos has been linked to bladder cancer. Is this true?
Possibly, although exactly how the two are linked has yet to be determined. However, in at least two countries in Europe, Actos has been banned outright, but it remains on drugstores shelves in the United States.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently issued a warning that Actos could cause bladder cancer. The risk seems to be considerably higher for those that take the drug at “high cumulative doses and for longer periods of time, usually 24 months or more.” (The Wall Street Journal)
The manufacturers of Actos, Takeda Pharmaceuticals, has agreed to sponsor a study that will hopefully help medical professionals determine exactly how Actos can cause bladder cancer. However, the FDA said that in the absence of concrete proof, “patients who are taking Actos should continue to take the drug, unless otherwise advised by their health care provider.” (Web MD)
