Actos and Bladder Cancer Lawsuits
Actos (pioglitazone) is a type-2 diabetes drug that has been associated with a potential risk of bladder cancer. Although the drug now carries a “Black Box” warning about the risk of bladder cancer, many people were injured before these warnings were added to the label. The manufacturer of Actos, Takeda Pharmaceuticals, is now facing more than 1,000 Actos lawsuits filed in a federal Multi-District Litigation (MDL).
SGLT2 Inhibitor Diabetes Drugs Linked to Ketoacidosis
The FDA recommends that patients on the following medications should be aware of the risk of ketoacidosis and seek emergency medical attention for symptoms like difficulty breathing, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, confusion, and unusual fatigue or sleepiness:
- Invokana (canagliflozin)
- Invokamet (canagliflozin and metformin)
- Farxiga (dapagliflozin)
- Xigduo XR (dapagliflozin and metformin extended-release)
- Jardiance (empagliflozin)
- Glyxambi (empagliflozin and linagliptin)
About Class Action Lawsuits
A class action lawsuit is a special type of litigation in which many people with similar claims consolidate their claims into one lawsuit. It makes sense when a lot of people have a relatively minor injury (for example, buying a TV with false advertisements about its screen resolution).
Why Our Law Firm is Filing Individual Lawsuits Instead of a Diabetes Drug Class Action
The problem with a class action lawsuit is that plaintiffs might have to split the award, accept a “low-ball settlement,” high attorney’s fees, or compensation that doesn’t cover their medical expenses.
When a large number of people are injured by a defective drug in the United States, the litigation is often resolved in a special centralized litigation called a Multi-District Litigation (MDL). Like a class action, lawsuits in an MDL are more efficient and cost-effective. However, unlike a class action, individual lawsuits in an MDL stay independent.
