Actos® is a prescription medicine that is licensed to treat type 2 diabetes. The medication, which helps to improve insulin sensitivity, has proven to be effective in lowering blood sugar and keeping it under control. Lowering blood sugar levels can also reduce the risk of developing long-term problems related to diabetes, such as heart disease.
Actos comes in tablet form and should be taken by mouth once daily. If you do not take your dosage as scheduled, take your next dose as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular schedule. Actos may potentially cause side effects such as water weight gain, headache, or sinus infection. However, most people tolerate it well. Before taking this medication, let your healthcare provider know if you have liver problems, heart problems, or any allergies.
