Lipitor Injury Lawyer

Lipitor Lawsuits & Victims' Rights

Lipitor is a popular cholesterol medication manufactured by Pfizer, Inc. A member of the drug class known as statins, Lipitor is used to lower blood cholesterol, stabilize plaque, and reduce the risk of strokes and heart attack. As one of the world's most popular cholesterol medications, Lipitor is taken by more than 22 million Americans and earns Pfizer billions of dollars in revenue each year.

The Daspit Law Firm is reviewing cases of consumers who suffered harm after using Lipitor.

If you or your loved one has recently suffered adverse side effects – including Type 2 Diabetes – after taking Lipitor, you may be entitled to financial compensation. For more information about your case and rights, call (888) 273-1045 for a FREE consultation.

Side Effects & Increased Risks of Diabetes

Many medical professionals and regulators have scrutinized Lipitor for its adverse side effects, which have included myopathy, liver dysfunction, and problems with endocrine function.

Other known side effects include:

  • Kidney stones
  • Urinary tract infections (UTI)
  • Abnormal heart rhythms
  • Muscular, joint, and abdominal pain
  • Memory loss

In recent years, several studies have associated the use of Lipitor in women with increased risks of developing Type 2 Diabetes. These risks were most pronounced in women after menopause and in women over the age of 63, according to a 2012 study published by The Women's Health Initiative. According to its findings, cholesterol-lowering statins – including Lipitor – created as much as a 50% increased risk for the development of Type 2 diabetes.

Side effects associated with Lipitor-induced Type 2 Diabetes include:

  • Frequent / increased urination
  • Excessive thirst and appetite
  • Unusual weight loss
  • Dry, itchy, or darkened skin
  • Slow healing of cuts, infections, and bruises
  • Yeast infections
  • Fatigue and irritability
  • Blurry vision
  • Tingling or numbness in the hands and feet

Learn More About Your Rights

Millions of Americans took Lipitor with the belief that it was safe for its intended use. Because drug manufacturers are required to ensure that their products are safe for consumers, they can be held accountable when medications pushed onto the market are found to have adverse effects or increased risks of causing harm.

Victims who suffer injuries or illnesses after using prescription medications such as Lipitor, therefore, may have a right to recover monetary compensation by filing a personal injury claim. Pfizer is currently facing numerous lawsuits and mass tort claims from injured consumers across the country.

If you would like to learn more about filing a Lipitor lawsuit and how a Houston personal injury lawyer from The Daspit Law Firm can help, call (888) 273-1045 today.
