What Is Crestor?

Medically Prescribed For - Crestor is a statin that is prescribed for various lipid disorders and to help lower cholesterol.

Adverse Reactions Experienced - During clinical trials, a small amount of patients developed the muscle disease rhabdomyolysis.  Rhabdomyolysis occurs when a large number of skeletal muscle cells die, leading to kidney or renal failure, malignant hear rhythms, and eventually cardiac arrest.  Symptoms of rhabdomyolysis include muscle pain, weakness, tenderness, fever, dark urine, nausea, and vomiting.  Rhabdomyloysis is also linked to Baycol which was taken off the market in 2001.

Status of Drug - Various lobbyists have petitioned the FDA to recall Crestor.

See your doctor if you have experienced health problems after taking Crestor.  In addition, contact a products liability attorney to help you protect your legal rights and get compensation for your injuries.
