Crestor Side Effects

Crestor Side Effects Lawsuits: Linked to Kidney Failure and Rhabdomyolysis

Crestor (Rosuvastatin Calcium ) is a drug designed to treat patients with high cholesterol. It is a type of drug classified as a statin. Statins work by blocking certain enzymes in the liver, enzymes which the body uses to make cholesterol. By blocking production of these enzymes, statins can lower heart attack risk and have helped many patients.

Unfortunately, the use of Statins can result in a dangerous condition called rhabdomyolysis, which if left untreated can lead to kidney failure and death. A similar statin drug called Baycol was withdrawn from the market two years ago after it became clear that its risks did not outweigh its benefits.

Rhabdomyolysis is a condition that causes muscle-cell breakdown (atrophy) and causes muscle pain, weakness, tenderness, malaise, fever, dark urine, nausea and vomiting, in some instances the rhabdomyolysis is so severe that patients develop failure of the kidney or other organs, which can be fatal.

Lawyers associated with this web site are examining claims for personal injuries and wrongful death related to this Crestor. They believe Crestor, may be similar to Baycol (made by Bayer) and the risk of rhabdomyolysis may be significantly higher with Crestor than with other cholesterol-lowering drugs such as Pravacol. AstraZeneca makes Crestor which has over one billion dollars in sales of this drug per year.
