My doc prescribed Actos for what he says is my last chance before going on insulin. I will not go on insulin! I am trying hard to stick to a low& carb diet. Its very frustrating, but so necessary. Okay, back to Actos. I was on it for a second time during my life as a diabetic. This time, I experienced serious side effects. I could not get rid of sinus infections! I got three sinus infections within 6 months, developed serious overactive bladder with serious incontinence and I gained weight! I took myself off Actos. I will get off on diabetic medication!! This is my belief, my goal. I will do research on all medication I am prescribed.
Has anyone had experience with Actos or can tell me more about it.
