Actos use for type 2 diabetes.

Do not use if you:
• are allergic to any ingredient in Pioglitazone
• have moderate to severe heart failure
• have type 1 diabetes
• have a history of liver problems, including jaundice (yellowing of the skin or eyes), during therapy with a similar medicine called troglitazone.

Good luck.
