regular use of the 80 mg dose of Zocor (simvastatin) has been associated with an increased risk of myopathy/rhabdomyolysis
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) November 22, 2012
The media spotlight is often a double-edged sword. No one knows this better than people who filed a Zocor Recall lawsuit. And yet, gossip and rumor-mongering aside, the real story here is being overlooked according to Sean Burke of AttorneyOne.
On November 7th, 2012, Health Canada endorsed important safety information on Zocor (simvastatin) dosage associated with the increased risk of myopathy/rhabdomyolysis. Zocor, manufactured by Merck Pharmaceuticals, is used to reduce bad cholesterol (LDL) and increase good cholesterol (HDL). The safety information clarified that the regular use of the 80 mg dose of Zocor (simvastatin) has been associated with an increased risk of myopathy/rhabdomyolysis, particularly during the first year of treatment.
According to court documents, on June 1st, 2012, Kathleen M. Harris filed a lawsuit in the Louisiana Western District Court (case no. 1:2012cv01446) alleging that Zocor caused her muscle and kidney problems.

As Mr. Burke, director of Media Relations for AttorneyOne.com, added, “What all this information really illustrates is that threat from Zocor remains. For that reason, our focus should squarely fall on getting the word out and assisting people in finding the right legal assistance.”
In June 2011, the FDA posed restrictions in the use of the highest approved dose of the cholesterol-lowering medication simvastatin (80 mg) because of increased risk of muscle damage.
