 3  Diabetes Type 2 I took this med for 8 + years. In Nov.2012 I noticed both of my feet and ankles were swollen like tree trunks. I thought from too much tamales, PC put me on 40 mg Lasix,didn't help. Went to diab.doctor,he said the actos ingredient was causing the swelling. Then prescribed Actos 1x daily and metformin 500 mg 2x daily. I don't take the actos because of the foot and leg swelling from before. My aBS is now 140-170,not good,but I've been on steroids for two weeks for sinus infection. Also made me gain weight,with Acto PlusMet. F 48 8 years

ACTOPLUS MET  (METFORMIN HYDROCHLORIDE; PIOGLITAZONE HYDROCHLORIDE):  This combination medication is used along with a proper diet and exercise program to control high blood sugar in people with type 2 diabetes. Controlling high blood sugar helps prevent kidney damage, blindness, nerve problems, loss of limbs, and sexual function problems. Proper control of diabetes may also lessen your risk of a heart attack or stroke. Pioglitazone belongs to a class of drugs known as thiazolidinediones or "glitazones". Metformin and pioglitazone work by helping to restore your body's proper response to the insulin you naturally produce. Metformin also decreases the amount of sugar that your liver makes and that your stomach/intestines absorb. Talk to your doctor about the risks and benefits of using pioglitazone-containing products.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
