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

    • Type 1 Diabetes recent onset!
      I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in September 2017 OUT OF NOWHERE.

      i am a Navy Reservist and deployed in later 2009 to mid 2010 and again later 2014 to mid 2015; had a 2 year recall between those deployments.  

      Only healthcare received since commissioning in 2008 was from the Navy and no issues EVER.

      insulin dependent and have dietary restrictions and in a non deployable status.

      VA denied initial claim due to Type 1 not showing on active duty and now appealing.

      Anyone with successful experience getting a rating with my circumstances?  I live in Upstate New York.

    • Agent Orange Kadena Afb Okinawa
      I am looking for anyone who was on Kadena AFB, Okinawa or .Chanute AFB, IL. My dad was there from Oct. 68-April 70. He has ichemic heart disease, diabetes which has resulted in the amputation of his right leg below the knee and peripheral neuropathy. We were denied in 2002 AMVETS filed a claim on his behalf for heart condition, diabetes and back problems. I refiled in December 2011 and have just received the claim statements and medical release forms. I am familiar with filling out this paper work because my husband is a combat veteran of Iraqi Freedom. I have been reading articles from the Japan times and I am a member of the Agent Orange Okinawa facebook page. Another thing that helps make my dad's case is that he was on Chanute AFB, IL and it is on the EPA Superfund list and has PCBs/Pesticides and Dioxins/Furans listed as ground and water contaminants. I welcome any advice, tips or articles that I may have missed in my own research.

    • Appeal granted and closed.
      My appeal was granted and closed on November 9.  I got an unofficial notification from the DAV on November 15 stating "appeal granted with an evaluation of 30%" which is great!  My question is this:  How long until I get the official notification from the va? Nothing on ebennies has updated since the appeal closed. Appeal is now in historical and just says complete and at originating va office. I understand no one knows va timelines to a tee but a general timeline would be great.  Thank you all! Hope you have a Merry Christmas!

       

      Edit:  This was my first time appealing and it was a VBA grant.
