Lipitor Lawsuit Lawyer

The medication Lipitor is used to control cholesterol levels and have been prescribed to millions of people all over the world. Unfortunately, there have been serious side effects associated with Lipitor use, such as an increased risk of diabetes. If you were prescribed Lipitor and have developed diabetes you may be entitled to compensation. The Lipitor lawsuit lawyers at Loncar Lyon Jenkins are offering free case evaluations for patients suffering from serious side effects associated with Lipitor use.

What is Lipitor?

Lipitor works by preventing an enzyme in the liver from creating low density lipids (LDLs), or “bad” cholesterol. The drug essentially blocks the production of this cholesterol thereby reducing the user’s cholesterol level and risk of heart disease.

Lipitor has been dubbed “the world’s all-time biggest selling prescription medication,” with more than $130 billion in total sales for its manufacturer, Pfizer Inc. It belongs to a class of cholesterol-lowering drugs, called “statins,” that are taken by roughly 21 million Americans.

Is Lipitor Safe?

The findings of recent studies have sparked the FDA to issue a drug safety communication in February 2012 regarding important safety label changes mandated for Lipitor and other statins. As part of the FDA announcement, the agency also included warnings to the public regarding the risks of serious side effects – including type 2 diabetes – when using Lipitor.

How Lipitor Lawsuits Can Help Victims

Patients who have suffered serious side effects from taking Lipitor may be facing financial hardships related to ongoing medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages, and more. Going after big pharma for not adequately educating the public on the dangers linked to their product will hold them accountable and can help to deter this type of crime from happening again in the future.

The guidance and patience exhibited by Attorney LaRue and his team were paramount in the successful navigation of this event for my family and I. In a perfect world I won't have to ring his phone anytime soon, but should the Truck of Life dump on me again, I wouldn't hesitate to dial them up.

Risks Associated with Lipitor Use

In February of 2012, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) labeling change indicated that statins, including Lipitor (atorvastatin calcium), may increase a woman’s risk of developing Type 2 diabetes. This diabetes risk may be especially high among postmenopausal middle-aged and older women, research shows.

The University of Massachusetts’ study, published in January 2012, focused on nearly 154,000 women. By the end of the study, researchers found that more than 10,200 women in the study had developed new cases of type 2 diabetes and that those with a body mass index (BMI) that was less than 25 had a greater risk of developing the disease. After accounting for the participating subjects’ age, weight, lifestyle and other factors that may contribute to the development of diabetes, researchers found that postmenopausal women taking statins like Lipitor had up to a 46 percent increased risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
