Who Qualifies to File a Zocor® Lawsuit?
Our attorneys are investigating Zocor® lawsuits on behalf of people who have suffered severe, life-threatening conditions after taking the statin medication. You might qualify to file a claim if you've suffered one or more of the following side effects:
- Severe muscle problems, including myopathy or rhabdomyolysis
- Kidney failure from rhabdomyolysis
- Liver problems
You might also be eligible to file a claim if you've suffered complications as a result of a dangerous drug interaction that you were unaware of. Your doctor is responsible for explaining all the potential risks associated with the medications he or she prescribes and should make sure you are not taking another medication that could interact negatively with Zocor®.
Simvastatin 's label was updated to include a list of drugs that should be taken with Zocor® following a June 2011 FDA alert. If you are unsure about any of the medications you are currently taking, you should speak with your doctor right away.
The FDA alert advised doctors against prescribing an 80 mg dose of Zocor® to new patients, as the higher dose increases the risk of severe muscle damage that could lead to kidney failure. If you are prescribed an 80 mg dose and suffer a serious side effect, you might have grounds to file a lawsuit.
