Lipitor Side Effects & Complications
Several medications exhibit potential serious side effects and complications.
Pharmaceutical companies are required to extensively research and test their products before releasing them to the general public. Many drug companies, however, push dangerous drugs to the market without preforming adequate research and testing.
Lipitor & Type 2 Diabetes
Reports have indicated that the cholesterol drug Lipitor may be a drug that was marketed to physicians and the public without proper research and testing. In early 2012, the FDA warned of new complications related to Lipitor use. These included the risk of women developing type 2 diabetes and the risk for developing hyperglycemia (high blood sugar). Subsequent studies have produced similar results.
Lipitor Linked To Muscle, Kidney & Liver Disease
Along with the risk for developing type 2 diabetes and hyperglycemia, Lipitor has also been linked to muscle, kidney and liver disease. A 2013 study of 14,000 United States soldiers concluded that those taking statins had a 19 percent greater risk of developing muscle and joint problems compared to those not taking statins. Rare forms of muscle disease, such as rhabdomyolysis, actually break down muscle tissue leading to dangerous substances entering the bloodstream and causing severe kidney complications.
The FDA has also recommended that doctors examine patient’s livers before prescribing statins such as Lipitor. Statins have been found in some individuals to cause liver damage that can sometimes prove to be fatal.
