Zocor 80 mg Pills Found To Have An Increased Risk Of Causing Rhabdomyolysis And Myopathy
The risk of developing rhabdomyolysis is greater for patients who use highest dose (80 mg) of Zocor (simvastatin). Rhabdomyolysis -- sometimes called "rhabdo" as its short name -- is the most serious form of myopathy and can lead to severe kidney damage, kidney failure, and sometimes death.
Zocor Class Actions
We believe that people who suffered a serious injury or death due to the Zocor cholesterol-lowering drug are better served when an individual lawsuit is filed on their behalf. A serious injury or death case should not be filed as part of any Zocor class action together with the claims of many other people who may have had different injuries caused by this cholesterol-lowering drug.
Legal Compensation for Zocor Injuries
If you experienced serious side effects from the use of Zocor, or a person died due to an adverse reaction while taking the Zocor cholesterol-lowering drug, you may have a claim for legal compensation. Legal compensation claims involving injuries or death caused by the use of Zocor are made by filing a lawsuit in court. All states have statutes of limitations that determine the time period allowed to file a Zocor lawsuit.
