Cholesterol Drug Lawsuits

Cholesterol Drug Lawsuits

Cholesterol medications have a long history of causing problems. Bayer's cholesterol drug, Baycol allegedly caused over 100 deaths in the United States. Bayer ended up paying $1 billion dollars to settle lawsuits against them for these deaths and injuries.

Two new drugs, Crestor and Zocol, are reported to cause several issues for patients who are perscribed these drugs. Both drugs are said to cause serious muscle and kidney conditions. A potential fatal, muscle-destroying condition called rhabdomyolysis is also said to be a side effect of the drugs.

Patients who take Zocor should speak to their doctors if they experience any muscle or kidney pain. Your doctor will be able to run tests to see if you have any side effects from taking the drugs.

The manufacturers of Zocor also changed their prescription recommendations due to complications with other medications. In fact, a broad group of medications can cause serious complications in the body if the dose of Zocor is not downgraded.

Two studies were conducted over the course of years to evaluate the safety of Zocor. In the first study, the goal was to look at patients with coronary heart disease and the effects of the drug. The second study was to evaluate the safety of cholesterol lowering drugs and to research whether or not these drugs may influence heart disease. Both studies were inconclusive because patients were non-compliant. However, many of the individuals that were excluded were non-compliant because of the side effects they experienced.

Lawyers argue that Zocor should not have been sold until proper research went into the possible side effects of taking it. More evidence is pouring in each day that proves that Zocor is a potentially dangerous drug and can cause serious health conditions and complications.

If you have experienced severe muscle or kidney pain or developed rhabdomyolysis, then you may be eligible for complications.
