Thanks to modern medicine‚ we have more ways than ever to control and manage disease‚ allowing us to live healthier lives. Unfortunately‚ when the very medicines we rely on injure us further‚ the results can be devastating. Prescription drugs should be safe. If you’ve been injured or have suffered from illness because of prescription drugs‚ contact a New Jersey Crestor attorney.
Crestor has recently gotten a lot of attention. Crestor is a drug that is designed to control the amount of unhealthy cholesterol in the bloodstream. Excess cholesterol can cause serious health problems‚ such as heart attacks‚ strokes‚ and arteriosclerosis. To learn more about Crestor and its uses‚ speak with a New Jersey Crestor attorney.
Like most drugs‚ Crestor has side effects. It’s typically up to the doctor and patient to determine whether the side effects of a particular drug are worth the risk‚ based on the patient’s condition and symptoms. Drugs are typically prescribed and used when the risk of not taking them is greater than the risk of taking them.

Dangerous Side Effects
One of the most serious side effects of Crestor is kidney damage. Because Crestor is 75% more likely to cause kidney damage‚ many consumer watchdog groups have asked that it be recalled. In addition‚ Crestor has also been linked to the disease Rhabdomyolysis‚ which destroys muscle tissue. This broken down muscle tissue eventually clogs the kidneys‚ and can cause complete renal failure. A New Jersey Crestor lawyer can educate you more about the potential side effects of Crestor.
Several studies show that Crestor is 2.2 to 6.8 times more likely than other cholesterol medications to cause serious harm‚ yet the manufacturer continues to make it‚ and doctors continue to prescribe it. If you’ve recently experienced negative side effects as a result of taking the prescription Crestor‚ contact New Jersey Crestor attorneys at Console & Hollawell today at (856) 778-5500 to set up a free consultation.
