About 7. Crestor/Statin
Some people who took the cholesterol drug Crestor filed lawsuits after suffering side effects like liver damage and type 2 diabetes. You or a loved one may be entitled to compensation.
Crestor (rosuvastatin) is generally prescribed to treat people at risk of heart attack and stroke. It belongs to a class of drugs known as HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors (statins), which work by slowing the production of cholesterol and reducing buildup of cholesterol on artery walls. The drug is the No. 2 seller in its class and is considered effective.
But after nearly a decade on the market, the drug?s manufacturer convinced the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) that Crestor is also effective as a preventative treatment. Since then, a number of the prescription drug?s side effects came to the forefront. Crestor is linked to serious health risks, including heart problems, muscle damage, organ failure and death.
