What You Need To Know About LIPITOR Injury Lawsuits

What You Need To Know About LIPITOR Injury Lawsuits

Lipitor is a popular cholesterol-lowering medication that many doctors prescribe to lower the likelihood of heart disease. Although Lipitor is supposed to lower bad cholesterol and raise the levels of good cholesterol in the blood, the drug has been linked to a variety of serious health complications. Lipitor has even been the subject of recalls after reports of an unusual odor in 40 mg bottles produced by Pfizer and reports of glass contaminating a generic version of the drug made by the Ranbaxy pharmaceutical company. Both Pfizer and Ranbaxy claim that despite the recalls, both versions of Lipitor pose no safety threat to patients.

In addition to the recalls, Pfizer has faced lawsuits from patients who experienced debilitating muscle problems and cognitive memory loss, as well as developed type 2 diabetes. Because the FDA said the risk of developing type 2 diabetes is so remote that the benefits of statin medications like Lipitor outweigh the risks, plaintiffs have filed product liability claims against manufacturers for failing to provide consumers with adequate warnings about the dangers associated with the drug.

Adverse side effects from Lipitorcan include:

  • Myopathy
  • Liver dysfunction
  • Urinary tract infections (UTI)
  • Problems with endocrine function
  • Memory loss
  • Muscular, joint, and abdominal pain
  • Abnormal heart rhythms
  • Blurry vision
