Forbes calls Lipitor “the world’s all-time biggest selling prescription medication,” with more than $130 billion in total sales for its manufacturer, Pfizer Inc. It belongs to a class of cholesterol-lowering drugs, called “statins,” that are taken by roughly 21 million Americans.
But a February 2012 U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) labeling change indicates that statins, including Lipitor (atorvastatin calcium), may increase a woman’s risk of developing Type 2 diabetes. This diabetes risk may be especially high among postmenopausal middle-aged and older women, research shows.
If you or someone you love has developed diabetes or other health problems after taking Lipitor tablets, you need to seek legal help in addition to medical assistance. You may be eligible to pursue litigation and help prevent others from being harmed by unsafe drugs.
