Crestor Heart Attack Risk Subject of Concern
Though cardiomyopathy is not currently listed on the Crestor's warning label, Crestor heart attack remains a concern for many. The drug's known adverse side effects include general muscle damage (myopathy) which can lead to a life-threatening condition known as rhabdomyolysis. Other side effects include diabetes, liver and kidney damage, and cognitive impairment. Though the drug has been on the market for years, new FDA warnings are still being added. Warnings over cognitive impairment (forgetfulness, confusion) were not added until 2012. Individuals who have been injured by their use of Crestor may benefit from consulting with an experienced Crestor lawyer and filing a Crestor lawsuit.
