LIPITOR: THE DARK SIDE OF STATINS
Special Report for Lipitor Patients and their Families
This free eBook is a must-read for patients who have developed diabetes while taking the drug Lipitor. The startling information within exposes the truth about the side effects of statin drugs, like Lipitor, and the how a drug company can get away, scot-free, with marketing a drug without warning of a known, dangerous side effect for years.
Lipitor is one of the top selling medicines in the entire world. Lipitor sales bring in $12+ billion in profits for the drug’s manufacturer, Pfizer, every year. Lipitor is prescribed to reduce what is commonly referred to as “bad cholesterol.”
The active drug substance in Lipitor is atorvastatin, which belongs to a class of drugs known as statins. Statins are cholesterol-lowering drugs and are widely marketed for their potential for reducing heart disease.
Trading High Cholesterol for Diabetes
Studies have confirmed that Lipitor has caused Type II diabetes in women taking the medication. These patients were never warned about this risk.
Pfizer has known for years that taking Lipitor can raise blood sugar in women and cause diabetes. Yet in all of its marketing efforts, Pfizer did nothing to warn patients, doctors or the general public about this risk until 2012, when the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) forced them to do so. FDA mandated that Pfizer add a warning to the drug’s medication label stating that Lipitor could increase the risk of diabetes mellitus as well as other potential side effects.
For many people who suffered serious side effects from Lipitor, this warning came too late. If you or a family member developed diabetes while taking Lipitor, you may have grounds for a Lipitor diabetes lawsuit.
Pharmaceutical Companies are masters of marketing.
Drug makers will always strive to create the next “blockbuster drug.” Yet new, popular drugs often become the subject of lawsuits over grievous, hidden side effects and inappropriate marketing practices.
Whether you developed diabetes after taking Lipitor or suffered other serious side effects—such as muscle tissue damage, liver damage, or memory loss—this free PDF eBook will explain why many people are now suing Pfizer, the maker of Lipitor.
The book will walk you through the fascinating (if disturbing) history of Lipitor and other statins. We reveal scientific studies that question the effectiveness of lowering cholesterol to prevent heart disease. We zero in on the marketing of Lipitor and other statin drugs as the “quick and easy way” to lower bad cholesterol at the expense of unsuspecting patients.
- Why did Pfizer fail to warn patients and doctors that using Lipitor significantly increased the risk of new onset diabetes or worsening of established Type 2 diabetes?
- Have the health benefits of statins to lower cholesterol been oversold? (Over 20 million Americans take statins.)
- Have serious side effects of drugs like Lipitor been ignored or minimized by the press and the medical community – at the expense of patients?
- Is it not curious that while statins are the most popular drugs in history, Pfizer and other drug manufacturers have whitewashed and in some cases actively concealed evidence about the harmful and potentially deadly side effects of statins?
- Why haven’t heart disease rates been greatly reduced, despite the fact that the statin industry has ballooned into a $29 billion a year industry?
