Complications Bring by Zocor Drug
Every drug really has side effects. Many drugs were already reported to have caused serious side effects. Even though these drugs or medicines can heal, it can as well affect the health causing another sickness that requires another medication. Have you heard about zocor lawsuit? It's the latest lawsuit on medicine I've heard. Zocor is among the group of drugs called HMG CoA reductase inhibitors or "statins" that is used to reduce levels of bad cholesterol and triglycerides in the blood and at the same time used to increase levels of good cholesterol. While this drug can correct the levels of our cholesterol, it brings complications to the muscles. Rare types of muscle injuries known as myopathy and rhabdomyolsis are said to be the complications brought by this drug. We must watch out!
