I have Severe Coronary Artery disease(service connected) with Diabetes type 2, The VA doc knows I have 50 % of my heart left and he puts me on Actos, which I end up in the emergency room after a week

of taking the meds, come to find out Here is the warning on Actos label which of course was in small print.

Warning: Heart Failure

ACTOS, ACTOplus met, ACTOplus met XR, and duetact are not for everyone. These medications can cause or worsen heart failure. Heart failure means your heart does not pump blood well enough. Talk to your doctor immediately if you experience unusually fast weight gain, fluid retention (swelling), shortness of breath, or unusual tiredness. Certain patients with symptoms of heart failure should not start taking ACTOS, ACTOplus met, ACTOplus met XR, or duetact. Do not take these medications if you have severe heart failure.

If you have a heart condition please be careful with this Med, I swear they are trying to kill us, so they don't have to pay us anymore.

I was given Avandia or Rosiglitazone as called by generic name. Although it is still given to some it has links to causing heart disease and since I took it for several years I developed blockage in my arteries. I had a stent put in and so far so good.

Dic Avandia cause it I don't know but a lot of people I know think so. Anyway I think that avandia was given in good faith by the Docs but the pharmacy lied to the Docs and hid information. I am in a class action right now and waiting to see how it comes out.

The Lawyers claim that the pharmacy was very deceitful and withheld info that they should have divulged. FDA is not much better they had access to the info and did nothing.

Two Tigers walked into the jungle and one starting licking the other ones butt. The Tiger asked why are you doing that and the other one said I just ate a Lawyer and I am trying to get the taste out of my mouth.

Pete,

There was just a commercial on for Avandia by a lawyer claiming it was causing heart attacks, heart failure and Osteoporosis, Actos or Pioglitazone generic name also causes bladder cancer,

so why would they even prescribe this to us Knowing the side effects for people with bad hearts.

Too funny with the tiger/Lawyer joke, but so true.

Find a lawyer and sue for malpractice. Those class action suits are shit for the birds. I am suing the doctor who caused me to have a staff infection. I got a private lawyer. You have to show you suffered an injury.

I am on ACTOSplus met XR for DMII. I was wondering why I was getting these notices from my Pharmacy, but my doctor said I should be fine. But, I have notice my stomach swelling (no, its not from beer). I need to talk to my doctor about this.

Thanks

    • I filed for my mitral valve regurgitation heart disease secondary to a service-connected condition on 7-30-18. It was granted on 8-30-18. Since I filed for this heart valve issue and was awarded, can I still file for hypertension ? I have been seeing comments that you should file for hypertension first and file for heart disease as a secondary. Can I file for hypertension as a secondary to my heart disease ? I am alittle confused on this matter.

    • I am a 100% disabled veteran, At first I was super excited to find out I am getting retro pay for back benefits to 2006. But that was over 2 months ago. I been waiting and waiting and calling to ask them wheres my back pay. They first told me "one month" than I call again. The guy started reading a script of basically "we are malingering on paying you" type crap. I was wondering if there is any number I can call besides that 800-827-1000 number to inquire about my status. I don't know why its taken so long when there is specific information telling them from the judge that VA owes. 

      There was a remanded to see if I was eligible for IU (I get it now since 2014 im actually 90% with 10 of that been IU). I been on SS since 2004. Can Someone help me out? Thank you

    • You might have a 38 CFR 3.156 situation-

      meaning the VA might have considered your claim in 95/96 as "not well grounded" and failed to even get your STRs.Or they did get your STRs but never considered the specific entry you cited here.

      Lots of discussion under a search, of 38 CFR. 3.156 (a)(b) (c) ---here is a winner:
