Actos (Pioglitazone) Medication Information

Uses

Actos is a thiazolidinedione and an agonist for peroxisome proliferator activated receptor (PPAR) gamma indicated as an adjunct to diet and exercise to improve glycemic control in adults with type 2 diabetes mellitus in multiple clinical settings.

Dosage

There are oral tablets available in several different strengths:

  • 15 mg
  • 30 mg
  • 45 mg

Side Effects

The most common side effects of Actos include:

  • Upper respiratory tract infection
  • Headache
  • Sinusitis
  • Myalgia
  • Pharyngitis

Speak with your doctor or pharmacist for a full list of side effects that applies to you.

Precautions

Actos, like other thiazolidinediones, can cause dose-related fluid retention when used alone or in combination with other antidiabetic medications and is most common when Actos is used in combination with insulin. Fluid retention may lead to or exacerbate congestive heart failure.

Actos should be used with caution in patients with edema. Because thiazolidinediones, including Actos, can cause fluid retention, which can exacerbate or lead to congestive heart failure, Actos should be used with caution in patients at risk for congestive heart failure.

There are insufficient data to determine whether pioglitazone is a tumor promoter for urinary bladder tumors. Consequently, Actos should not be used in patients with active bladder cancer and the benefits of glycemic control versus unknown risks for cancer recurrence with Actos should be considered in patients with a prior history of bladder cancer.

Interactions

Some of the common drug interactions with Actos:

  • Abiraterone
  • Gemfibrozil
  • Insulin
  • Monoamine oxidase inhibitor
  • Pregabalin 
  • Rifampin
  • SSRIs
  • Thiazide diuretics

For a more complete list speak with your doctor or pharmacist 

Storage

Store at controlled room temperature (77ºF) and keep container tightly closed. Protect from light, moisture, and humidity.

Pharmacist Tips

  • Adhere to dietary instructions and to have blood glucose and glycosylated hemoglobin tested regularly
  • Patients who experience an unusually rapid increase in weight or edema or who develop shortness of breath or other symptoms of heart failure while on Actos should immediately report these symptoms to a physician
  • When using combination therapy with insulin or other antidiabetic medications, the risks of hypoglycemia, its symptoms and treatment, and conditions that predispose to its development
  • Therapy with Actos, like other thiazolidinediones, may result in ovulation in some premenopausal anovulatory women. As a result, these patients may be at an increased risk for pregnancy while taking Actos. Therefore, adequate contraception should be recommended for all pre-menopausal women who are prescribed Actos
