Difference between Brand & Generic?


Actos is the brand name of the medication pioglitazone, an oral diabetes medication that assists on controlling blood sugar levels. It is usually prescribed alongside diet, exercise, and lifestyle changes to help improve blood sugar control in adult type 2 diabetes patients. This medication is not intended for treatment in type 1 diabetes patients or anyone under the age of 18.

As with any medications, take Actos in an exact manner that your doctor has instructed you to. This medication can be taken with or without food. Store the medication at room temperature away from heat, moisture, and light.

This medication is usually prescribed as part of a regimen that may include lifestyle, diet, or exercise changes alongside medical testing. Your doctor may also prescribe you an emergency glucagon kit in case you have extreme hypoglycemia and are unable to drink or eat. Your blood sugar levels can be altered by illness, exercise, stress, skipping meals, drinking alcohol, and surgery.


You should avoid taking this medication if you have uncontrolled or severe heart failure, diabetic ketoacidosis, or active bladder cancer. Actos can cause congestive heart failure or make it worse. If you experience any symptoms of heart failure, you should stop taking this medication and call your doctor right away. To make sure that this medication is safe for you to take, you should provide your doctor with a full medical history and a list of any medications, vitamins or supplements that you take. Taking this medication can increase your risk of experiencing serious heart problems. However, leaving your diabetes untreated may result in damage to your organs. Talk to your doctor about the benefits and risks of this medication. If you think that you are experiencing an allergic reaction or overdose, you should get emergency medical help.

Taking this medication may increase your chances of becoming pregnant. Talk to your doctor about your dosage and directions if you are pregnant, as blood sugar control is very important while pregnant. Pioglitazone may not be safe to take while breastfeeding. Talk to your doctor about the risks.

The medication to treated SIBO in the USA is absolutely over priced as it has to be used usually twice a year. True Canada Pharmacy helped me obtain 2+ treatment doses of it for far, far, far less than 1 treatment dose cost in the USA. Due to the pandemic it takes a while to get it but we are all set for the next time it recurs. Thank you so very much.

I was frustrated with the Visa payment system being inoperable, but I have to say that when they went ahead a filled the Rx and said they would process the claim when it went back up, that was exceptional service - thank you

I have used Canadian Pharmacy for at least 10-12 years. I have been very grateful to be able to get my life saving scripts at reasonable affordable prices. The follow-up of your Reps is excellent. During the COVID 19 virus outbreak scripts took much longer to receive. I think thus was partly due to the U.S.P.S. assault by DeJoy as Postmaster General. Before COVID 19 it took approx. 2-3 weeks to receive meds; during COVID 19 and the US General Election year, it took easily 2 months to receive scripts. It will be interesting to see if future orders arrive any more quickly after DeJoy is no longer Postmaster General?!

Good experience. I found another pharmacy with a lower price than yours, and you did lower the price for me. It took some time to get everything straight, so you expedited the mail and I received it on time. Thank you.
