California Zocor Lawyers

Zocor Attorneys in CaliforniaZocor lawyers in California have their hands full; what was designed to help patients lower their cholesterol may now be responsible for a life-threatening form of muscle disease. Patients who were prescribed the medicine are coming forward claiming that they have sustained injuries due to Zocor's defective design. With an estimated 24 million Americans taking cholesterol-lowering drugs, our defective drug lawyers await a wave of Zocor lawsuits.

Zocor and Crestor, also known as Simvastatin, are prescription drugs which work by inhibiting cholesterol production in the liver. Clinical database trials have been released that support claims alleging that Zocor side effects are responsible for life-threatening injuries.

Zocor Side Effects and Statistics

Patients prescribed with this deadly medicine can find themselves in a world of trouble. The FDA released a study largely based on data run by SEARCH (Study of the Effectiveness of Additional Reductions in Cholesterol and Homocysteine) which analyzed the relationship between these drugs and cardiovascular injuries, such as heart attacks. These studies show that patients taking 80 mg. of simvastatin, compared to those taking 20 mg., developed Myopathy.

Zocor and Crestor have been linked to a number of life-threatening conditions including the following:

  • Yellow Eyes
  • Jaundice
  • Liver damage or failure
  • Dark uringe
  • Kidney problems
  • Cardiomyopathy
  • Joint pain
  • Abdominal pain
  • Clay-colored Stool
  • Rhabdomyolysis

Those who have suffered injuries due to defective Zocor can find themselves in a state of depression and outrage. Victims of product defects such as Zocor find it hard to move on after suffering life-altering injuries. If you or a loved one has suffered serious side effects due to this defective medication, it is in your best interest to contact one of our defective medication attorneys immediately.
