As drug recalls go, the situation surrounding Crestor is barely on the map, according to the Ohio injury lawyers at Elk & Elk Co., Ltd. In fact, most of what we see on television and in other mainstream media outlets touts Crestor as being a miracle drug capable of lowering cholesterol and even serving as a preventative measure to combat heart disease. But the reality is that there are critical drawbacks inherent in taking the medication regularly, including attacking the very organ it was developed to help.

If someone you love has experienced the adverse side effects of Crestor, call the product defect lawyers at Elk & Elk for a free consultation. Call 1-800-ELK-OHIO or contact us online.

Crestor's adverse side effects

In simple terms, cardiomyopathy is an enlarging and toughening of the heart. Literally, it's defined as "heart muscle disease," and practically, it causes the heart to pump blood through the body less and less effectively. If left undiagnosed and/or untreated, it may lead to heart failure.

According to WebMD, Crestor's side effects may also include:

  • Habdomyolysis: a serious kidney complication and other muscle problems
  • Foamy, bloody urine; rashes; itching; severe stomach and abdominal pain
  • Persistent nausea and vomiting and a serious allergic reaction

If you or someone you know has taken Crestor and has experienced side effects, it's time to contact the Ohio injury lawyers at Elk & Elk, who handle not only drug recalls, but sometimes even cases involving drugs that injure people before recalls are initiated.
