Actos Coupon Details

Actos is a brand name of the generic drug pioglitazone. It is prescribed by doctors in conjunction with a balanced diet and exercise regimen for the treatment of type 2 diabetes. In some instances it is used in combination with other diabetes medications. Pioglitazone is classified as a thiazolidinedione and works by controlling insulin-sensitive genes so the body becomes more sensitive to insulin and blood sugar levels drop to normal levels. Actos is not a treatment for type 1 diabetes where little to no insulin is produced by the body.

How it is Used
Actos is a tablet that is taken by mouth with water once per day. It can be taken with or without meals. Doctors often prescribe a low dose at first, gradually increasing the dose until the desired blood sugar levels are reached. Pioglitazone is not a cure for type 2 diabetes, so it must be continued to be taken until otherwise told by a doctor. In many cases, it does not reach peak effectiveness until several weeks after the treatment has begun.

Precautions
Before starting any treatment that involves Actos, the following precautions should be taken:
• The doctor should be notified of any drug allergies.
• The doctor should be notified of any other medications or nutritional/herbal supplements that are currently being used. Special precautions must be taken if taking any of the following drugs: Lipitor, Lopid, contraceptives affecting hormone-based contraceptives, Nizoral, Singulair, Procardia, and Rifadin.
• Women who are pregnant or breast-feeding should not take Actos.
• Chances of pregnancy may increase.
• Illness, infection, stress, or injuries may affect blood sugar levels beyond the medication’s control.
• Those with heart conditions, heart defects, or a history of edema should first consult a doctor.
• Hypoglycemia may occur if used in conjunction with other diabetes medications.

Side Effects
In clinical trials, several side effects have been registered by patients taking Actos:
• Cold-like symptoms (runny nose, congestion, sore throat)
• Headache
• Tooth pain
• Muscular pain

Some patients have reported more serious side effects. If any of these side effects occur, a doctor should immediately be notified:
• Loss of vision or blurry vision
• Jaundice
• Excessively dark urine
• Fatigue
• Loss of appetite
• Nausea
• Vomiting

In some studies, patients who took Actos developed bladder cancer at higher rates than the general population, and women had higher rates of fractured bones from accidents.
