Crestor Lawsuit

If you are a people with high LDL cholesterol I think you are familiar or even a user of Crestor to threat your high cholesterol and prevent cardiovascular disease.
Crestor, a cholesterol-lowering drug, won approval from the FDA in August 2003 for certain dosages: 5, 12, 20, and 40mg dosages; however the 80mg dosage was not approved. In February 2010, the FDA also approved Crestor to prevent cardiovascular events.

Crestor can result in serious injuries such as heart attacks and heart failure. Other side effects include cardiomyopathy (deterioration of the myocardium), rhabdomyolysis (breakdown of muscle fibers), and ventricular dysfunction.
Based on these and other serious side effects, in 2004, a consumer advocacy group filed a petition with the FDA, suggesting that Crestor be removed from the market. In addition, an article in the medical journal The Lancet criticized the marketing tactics used to introduce the drug, as well as the data supporting its efficacy.
