Lipitor®

Lipitor Lawsuit Attorneys

Lipitor® is the brand name for a Pfizer pharmaceuticals-produced drug called atorvastatin. The drug is intended to control high cholesterol, but since its release in 1996, some female patients taking Lipitor® began to develop type 2 diabetes.

The problems with Lipitor® became so bad that in 2012, the FDA demanded that Lipitor® labels be updated to include warning of these severe side effects. The drug was also “black-boxed”, which means that doctors were required to inform patients of these side effects before the patient took the drug.

While sometimes women taking Lipitor® develop type 2 diabetes due to weight gain, in many cases, it is Lipitor that causes the diabetes. If you think you might have type 2 diabetes related to your use of Lipitor®, and you identify with the below, you may be entitled to compensation for the complications Lipitor® caused. Call the experienced attorneys at McDivitt Law Firm today.
