Lipitor muscle disease lawsuits are being filed for consumers who took this dangerous medication. Lipitor is a statin, and works by inhibiting a protein in the liver that makes a majority of the cholesterol in the body. Because the liver cannot make cholesterol, it takes it up from the bloodstream, which lowers levels in the blood.
There have been increasing complaints about Lipitor causing muscle disease, also known as myopathy.
Lipitor can cause or increase the risk of muscle disease. This is because research has shown that it directly attacks the system cells use to generate energy, which causes calcium to leak out of the cells. The muscle cells need both the energy-generating system and the calcium to live and function properly. This leads to muscle disease, and taking Lipitor with certain medications can increase the risk of muscle disease.
