Lipitor

  • Lipitor Medical Record Review & Outsourcing Services

Lipitor (Atorvastatin calcium tablets) was brought into the market by Pfizer. Atorvastatin belongs to a class of drugs called statin, used for lowering blood cholesterol. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Lipitor in 1996. The drug works by blocking HMG-CoA reductase, the enzyme that allows the liver to produce LDL or "bad" cholesterol. It also stabilizes plaque and prevents stroke through its anti-inflammatory and other mechanisms.

Lipitor is prescribed to patients suffering from Dyslipidemia (abnormal amount of lipids like cholesterol and/or fat in the blood) and for prevention of cardiovascular disease.

Women in menopausal age taking Lipitor may be at a much greater risk for Diabetes because of the hormonal changes.

Serious Alleged Injuries may include:

  • Type II Diabetes
  • Liver damage
  • Memory loss

FDA SAFETY WARNINGS:

In February 2012, the FDA made it compulsory for Pfizer and other statin drug companies to add warnings to their drug labels about the risk of liver damage and memory loss along with the risk of increased HbA1c and fasting serum glucose levels. HbA1c and fasting serum glucose levels help determine whether a patient has diabetes.

MDL 2502 consists of more than two thousand cases against Lipitor manufacturer. On January 25, 2016, and later on February 3, 2017, the court gave summary judgment for all Lipitor cases.

On January 26, 2017, and February 8, 2017, the plaintiffs filed notices of appeal before the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit regarding.
