Crestor Lawsuits

Our lawyers are reviewing potential lawsuits regarding Crestor and its possible side effects. Crestor is an anti-cholesterol drug called a statin. Crestor is made by AstraZeneca Pharmaceuticals, a company that has been under fire in a number of product liability lawsuits in recent years.

Crestor is a statin that treats dyslipidemia. Crestor is supposed to – and I think does – reduce “bad” cholesterol while raising “good” cholesterol. But Crestor lawsuits claim it has also been linked to serious and potentially life-threatening cardiovascular side effects.

Rhabdomyolysis is another serious concern. Rhabdomyolysis occurs when a large number of skeletal muscle cells die, leading to a flood of muscle protein in the blood. A massive amount of muscle protein is released into the bloodstream when the muscle cells die. This muscle protein overwhelms the blood stream and can get trapped in the patient’s kidneys. The complications from this ultimately result in kidney failure.
