Lipitor Dangerous Drug Attorneys

Have You Experienced Severe Side Effects After Taking Lipitor? We Can Help!

Despite being the world’s top-selling prescription drug of all time, Lipitor has faced more than 2,000 lawsuits due to reports of kidney and liver complications, along with other health risks. Lipitor was created by Pfizer to treat patients with high cholesterol levels, though it has recently been found to increase the risk of developing Type 2 diabetes.

If you or a loved one experienced any serious side effects after taking Lipitor for the treatment of high cholesterol, you may be able to seek compensation. Our personal injury attorneys at Kalfus & Nachman PC have the legal skills and the experience necessary to fight for your rights. When you take a new drug, you have a right to expect it will be reasonably safe and will carry appropriate warnings of any potential health risks. However, if a drug causes you harm because of the manufacturer’s negligence, you have a right to seek justice for the resulting pain inflicted on you.

Call our firm at (855) 880-8163, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week!

What is Lipitor?

Lipitor, also known as atorvastatin calcium, was created to treat high-cholesterol together with diet and exercise. Lipitor belongs to a class of drugs called statins, which are usually used for the same treatment but have been known to put consumers at an increased risk of stroke, heart attack, and other complications. Statins support the liver as it removes existing cholesterol from the blood and reduces the amount of cholesterol the liver produces. It was proven to reduce the risk of heart attack by up to 36% in most patients, though it had very negative effects on roughly 2% of patients.

Lipitor Side Effects

The negative side effects of Lipitor are rare, though they can be very serious and lasting. Side effects may include:

  • Kidney and liver damage
  • Muscle damage
  • Fetal harm in pregnant women
  • Hyperglycemia
  • Tinnitus
  • Hepatitis
  • Memory loss
  • Abdominal pain
  • Musculoskeletal pain
  • Increased risk of type 2 diabetes

Seek Compensation for Your Injuries

While side effects may be rare, they can be very serious and even life-threatening in certain circumstances. Some Lipitor patients reported liver or kidney failure after taking the drug, and many more reported other painful symptoms after use. If you or a loved one suffered after taking Lipitor, contact our firm to find out if you have a personal injury claim.
