Los Angeles Zocor | Crestor Defects and Injury Lawyers

Crestor was approved by the FDA in 2003 but patients encountered numerous complications from taking the drug just five months after its approval. Since its approval in 2003, doctors have been petitioning the FDA to recall Crestor due to its high-risk of sometimes lethal complications. Zocor was approved by the FDA in 1998 and the FDA first issued warnings against this drug in 2008. Both drugs have experienced similar adverse side effects that are harmful to their users.  Pharmaceutical drug attorneys are investigating the complaints alleged against Crestor and Zocor.

What are Zocor and Crestor?

Zocor and Crestor are prescription drugs that help reduce the amount of cholesterol and other fatty substances in a person’s blood. They combat the buildup of cholesterol and other fats along the walls of blood vessels that can decrease blood flow and oxygen to the brain, heart, and other parts of the body. Therefore, taking drugs such as these that reduce cholesterol can help decrease a person’s chance of getting heart disease, strokes, and heart attacks.
