Actos Overview

Pioglitazone (brand name Actos) is a prescription drug of the thiazolidinedione (TZD) class with hypoglycemic (antihyperglycemic, antidiabetic) action to treat diabetes.

small white round pill with 30 on it nothing other side

Just has a 30 on one side and no line. I found in wrong bottle ## Never mind. Found out it was outdated actos The actos was really light on other side. Thank you ## @lonewolfangel, Thanks for sharing your finding on that pill ID. I did some research as well and came to the same conclusion after seeing an actual photo of the pill with Actos embedded on one side and 30 on the other. If you need any other more information on the pill, I also found out which inactive ingredients are contained in this tablet. This includes the following: carboxymethylcellulose calcium + hydroxypropyl cellulose + lactose monohydrate + magnesium stearate I know some people can be more sensitive to certain binders/fillers that they put in these tablets, so I wanted to make sure you got those details as well. Ho...

Suffered from Diabetes and now worry free!

Hi,, I am chris, I am just a newbie here., but i wanted to share you something that maybe could change your life too., I was diagnosed with type II diabetes close to 4 years now.. I started taking my meds and was doing ok.. then I guess when I felt better I stopped taking meds. I would take them only when I felt really sick and like I first did when diagnosed. Over the years I was on different med...meformin, actos, and more others that I can't remember... and I was also on 70/30 humilin (sp) at the time. I would take a dose of insulin..My mom would always tell me u need to see a doctor. I was so stubborn and would not do so.. and then my friend referred me to his friend who is an Endocrinologist., I arranged a schedule for a visit and check-up. Im tired of follow-up check ups., I k...

Actos and bladder cancer

My husband tool actos and has bladder cancer. The FDA is investigatng the link. He now has a new medicine. Is anyone else involved in this mess? ## There is some preliminary evidence reported as linking this medication to bladder cancer, though more confirmation is needed to prove it, which is why the FDA is investigating. How long was your husband on it? ## He was on it for four years before he developed bladder cancer. I know there is no validation yet, but it is an interesting concept. Avandia is another drug in the same family. We may never know if the drug caused the bladder cancer. He insisted that his doctor take him off the drug, and he is on metformin.

white pill l1

the pill is 9 mm in diameter, white, and has L1 stamped on one side of it. I took it accidentally thinking it was my ACTOS (it is very slightly larger than ACTOS 15 mg) ## I need to know what that pill is also ## Is that the complete imprint from the tablet?

junuvia

Prescriped for diabetis type 2 with actos. I was looking to gain weight with a different drug than metformin. ## Most of the side effects are the same as they are for Metformin, except for nausea and cold symptoms, which were more prominent with Januvia. Weight gain, however, is not a typical side effect of either one.
