Actoplus Met XR Uses
Can Children Take It?Actoplus Met XR has not been adequately studied in children, and there is not enough information available to recommend its use. Talk to your healthcare provider about the benefits and risks of using Actoplus Met XR for type 2 diabetes in children.
Off-Label Actoplus Met XR Uses
On occasion, your healthcare provider may recommend this product for treating something other than type 2 diabetes. This is called an "off-label" use.
At this time, a possible off-label use for Actoplus Met XR is the treatment of polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). However, because of the possible link between thiazolidinedione medications and heart problems (see Actoplus Met XR Warnings and Precautions), the use of metformin alone (without the pioglitazone) is probably more acceptable for this use.
