Drug name: Actos
Generic name: Pioglitazone, Pioneer, P-Glitz
Use: Type of 2 diabetes mellitus
Actos is prescribed for the treatment of type 2 diabetes. It is not for use in type 1 diabetes. Type 2 diabetes occurs when the sugar levels in the blood are too high and it is not an insulin dependent type of diabetes like type 1. The active ingredient in Actos is Pioglitazone, which is an oral diabetic medication and it may sometimes be used in combination with insulin to control the illness. Type 2 diabetes is usually treated with a combination of drugs such as Actos along with changes to diet and exercise.
