Crestor—Why Do We Use It And What Are The Dangers?
Even though drug manufacturers have a duty to make drugs that are safe for humans, or to provide warning labels in an instance where there are any dangers associated with the use of the drug, people are becoming victims of bad drugs each and every day. Crestor is no exception to this.
Crestor is used to lower high cholesterol, something so many Americans deal with. Crestor is in a class of drugs known as statins. Crestor can put the person taking it at a higher risk of immune-mediated necrotizing myopathy. This leads to muscle weakness and increased serum creatine kinase. In addition, another possible side effects when taking Crestor with other medications include muscle injuries.
Liver problems are also a possibility. Some have even experienced an increase in blood sugar levels. The FDA has noted that various forms of kidney failure were reported with individuals who were taking Crestor.
Lastly, in 2012 the FDA announced that the use of statins, which is the class of drugs in which Crestor is found, was associated with an increased risk of diabetes.
If you or a loved one was prescribed Crestor, and has experienced injury due to taking Crestor, do not hesitate to consult with an experienced Columbia Crestor Lawyer, such as the lawyers with the Green Law Firm.
