I started taking Actos about two months ago. Since starting Actos I have gained 20 to 25 pds. I was wondering if anyone else had this problem? I a bit worried and thinking about calling my doctor tomorrow.

Hi Mia,

Yes, Actos can cause weight gain. It is less likely to cause weight gain than Avandia is but it can still do so. I did experience weight gain with both Avandia and Actos. However, unlike Avandia the weight gain leveled off after about 2 1/2 months.

I gained 40 pounds in 40 days while taking Actos- I stopped taking it because my ankles were as big around as my head and nothing my doctor said was going to persuade me to take it.

I had an awful time with Actos. LOTS of low blood sugar episodes and swelling. Did not like that medicine! Having better luck with my low carb food plan.
