Has your health been damaged by the use of Crestor?
Crestor is a cholesterol-lowering pharmaceutical which was FDA-approved for use by the public in August 2003. This pharmaceutical is called a statin which lowers bad cholesterol in the bloodstream while also helping to raise “good cholesterol,” known as high density lipoprotein (HDL). Since its release, however, Crestor has been shown to possess the potential for serious side effects, which can have long-lasting and even deadly consequences. The FDA has put out an advisory as to the risk of these side effects while public health safety groups have called for its recall and for lawsuits against its manufacturer due to cases of severe injury and even death in Crestor users.
