Lipitor Claims are Quickly Rising
Lipitor, generically known as Atorvastatin, is a statin drug manufactured by Pfizer which has been the subject of controversies recently. It was first sold in the market in the year 1996 for its therapeutic effects on decreasing cholesterol levels. Lipitor works by reducing the production of the enzyme HMG-CoA reductase. This enzyme aids in the production of Low-density lipoproteins or LDL’s in the liver. By reducing LDL levels, several forms of disorders affecting the cardiovascular system are prevented.
However, recent studies have revealed that Lipitor has several side effects. These include Rhabdomyolysis, a disorder affecting the skeletal muscles and Diabetes Mellitus. Studies have also shown that the medication can affect brain and cause memory loss characterized by forgetfulness. If you have been using Lipitor for quite some time and have been experiencing continuing side effects, you can file for a claim against the manufacturer.
