Perhaps yes, however it would be better to talk to your doc./pharmacist as he/she would know your medical history better, please read more on this link: https://www.drugs.com/sfx/actos-side-effects.html, hope it helps?

I too am a diabetic and have been told 99% of diabetes drugs causing weight gain unfortunately. I am on Glyburide and that does it too. I think one of the only ones that don't is actual insulin. Try walking more if you can, I bought a treadmill to help in the bad weather. Hope this helps. Like I said most of them have that side effect but keep taking your meds you don't want to be worse in diabetes. Talk to your doctor maybe there is a pill that's different if you find one let me know-please.
