For Diabetes, Type 2 “I have been taking actos since Nov and had great results at first and now it seems like it it doesn’t work at all even after taking an additional pill with evening meals. Blood sugar readings are the same with or without it”

For Diabetes, Type 2 “Effective. However, because of issues with possible Bladder Cancer reports, my new Endocrinologist immediately took me off Actos. Also, nausea and vomiting side effects.”

For Diabetes, Type 2 “I have been taking Actos for 5 years. Recently the cardiologist diagnosed me with heart failure. My EF is 30%. 2 weeks ago I stopped taking Actos and my fasting blood test is 125 the same reading as when I was taking Actos.”

For Diabetes, Type 2 “Actos 15mg Metformin 850 mg works for me for almost 3 months now. Before I have fbs of 185 and 225 after meal. Now, almost everyday I prick, I got around 90 and 100 before and after meal. Better take these meds before breakfast.”

For Diabetes, Type 2 “When I was initially diagnosed, my Dr. put me on Metformin, which just ripped my stomach to bits. He prescribed Actos in October, and I had really good luck with it until around Christmastime – I started having HORRIBLE sinus problems and nosebleeds. We dropped to a 15 mg dose, but still no change with the sinus issues. I went off it all together and all the symptoms disappeared. It was never our long term plan to keep me on Actos because of the cardiac implications, but it did the job we needed it to do; I went from fasting 400-504 BG readings down to fasting readings of 110-115.”
