Actos and a Class Action Lawsuit

I don't know how many Type II diabetics read this site, nor how many of you are taking the drug "Actos," but there are a few serious health complications that may be associated with long-term use of it. A class action lawsuit has been filed against the manufacturer, and if you're concerned that you may have injuries related to its use, you can find information about it here:

  1. Actos is produced by Takeda Industries and co-marketed by Eli Lilly. Eli Lilly Zyprexa can *cause* diabetes.

    I took Zyprexa olanzapine a powerful Lilly schizophrenic drug for 4 years it was prescribed to me off-label for post traumatic stress disorder was ineffective costly and gave me diabetes. Eli Lilly's #1 cash cow Zyprexa drug sale $65 billion dollars so far,has a ten times greater risk of causing type 2 diabetes over the non-user of Zyprexa. So,here we have a conflict of interest that this same company Eli Lilly also is a big profiteer of diabetes treatment. (Actos works as an insulin *sensitizer*)

    Sooooo,Eli Lilly pushes a drug (Zyprexa) that can cause diabetes.... then turn around sell you the drugs (Actos) to treat the diabetes that in turn can cause cancer! What a terrible conflict of interest!
