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

    • Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask
      Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask. Chris Attig - Veterans Law Blog 

      <br style="color:#000000; text-align:start">How to Hire an Attorney For Your VA Claim or Appeal Free Guidebook available on the Veterans Law Blog

      I got an email the other day from a Veteran.  It had 2 or 3 sentences about his claim, and then closed at the end: “Please call me. So-and-so told me you were the best and I want your help.”

      While I appreciate the compliments, I shudder a little at emails like this.  For 2 reasons.

      First, I get a lot of emails like this.  And while I diligently represent my clients – I often tell them we will pursue their claim until we have no more appeals or until we win – I am most assuredly not the best.

      There are a LOT of damn good VA Disability attorneys out there.  (Most, if not all, of the best are members of the National Organization of Veterans Advocates…read about one of them, here)

      Second, I don’t want Veterans to choose their attorney based on who their friend thought was the best.  I want Veterans to choose the VA Disability attorney who is BEST for their case.

      In some situations, that may be the Attig Law Firm.

      But it may also be be Hill and Ponton, or Chisholm-Kilpatrick, or Bergman Moore.  Or any one of the dozens of other attorneys who have made the representation of Veterans their professional life’s work.

      There are hundreds of attorneys that are out there representing Veterans, and I’m here to tell you that who is best for your friend’s case may not be the best for your case.

      How do you Find the Best VA Disability Attorney for your Claim?

      First, you have to answer the question: do you NEED an attorney?

      Some of you don’t...
