You May Qualify for a Lipitor Lawsuit
The cholesterol-lowering medication, Lipitor (atorvastatin calcium), is prescribed to reduce the risk of heart attack, stroke, chest pain and heart surgery in patients with heart disease. Since it hit the market, it has been widely prescribed and has been a top seller. Although the medication has been a benefit to many people, taking it does not come without risks.
It has been brought to our attention that Lipitor may increase the risk of the onset of Type 2 diabetes in women. Type 2 diabetes can lead to other serious complications such as:
- Heart and blood vessel disease
- Nerve and kidney damage
- Eye damage
- Increased risk for Alzheimer's disease
If you have developed Type 2 diabetes and have a history of taking Lipitor, it is a possibility that the two are connected. To learn more or to find out if you qualify to file a lawsuit to seek compensation for your damages, contact us today.
Our Lipitor lawyers represent individuals who have taken Lipitor and who have suffered serious complications such as the development of Type 2 diabetes or severe muscle damage. Please note that common side effects such as mild muscle pain, nausea and upset stomach are not grounds for a lawsuit.
