"Generic ActosThere is currently no generic Actos available in the United States. However, the current patent with Takeda Pharmaceuticals expires in 2011, which means other drug companies could start manufacturing a generic version of Actos at that point. Since some companies sell fake, substandard, and potentially dangerous medications, you should avoid any so-called generic Actos products until an approved version becomes available."

Takeda Pharmaceuticals makes this product. With that in mind check out the link below to see if you can go on their patient program.

So it looks like your doctor needs to go over your tests and diabetic scores to decide if you could go on to something else.

Hope things work out for you
