Diabetes Home > Actos 45 mg Tablets

For type 2 diabetes treatment, the recommended starting dosage of Actos® (pioglitazone hydrochloride) is 15 mg or 30 mg once daily. If necessary, your healthcare provider may increase your dosage to a 45 mg Actos tablet once daily to control your blood sugar levels.
However, the exact Actos dosage your healthcare provider recommends will depend on several factors, including:
  • How well your diabetes is controlled
  • Other medical conditions you may have
  • Other medications you are currently taking.
