Lipitor News: Rottenstein Law Group LLP Comments on Boomers’ Favorite Drug

New York, NY (PRWEB) June 20, 2013

Drugs like Lipitor and its generic equivalents are poised to become Baby Boomers’ drug of choice, according to a June 19 MarketWatch report based on a Mayo Clinic study.* The Rottenstein Law Group LLP, which represents clients in Lipitor cases, acknowledges the report with some concern considering the allegations that Lipitor can cause women to develop type 2 diabetes.

The Mayo study found that among patients aged 50 to 64 two types of drugs are the most prescribed: cholesterol-reducing drugs, such as Lipitor, and antidepressants, according to the MarketWatch report. For those over the age of 65, drugs for treating cholesterol are the most widely used, indicating a growth in use as Boomers age.

“It is certainly a patient’s prerogative to use a drug prescribed to treat her high cholesterol,” said Rochelle Rottenstein, principal of the Rottenstein Law Group LLP. “But it is important to note that there is currently ongoing litigation over the drug’s potential to increase the risk of developing type 2 diabetes in its users, especially women. Not only do we hear about this in the phone calls we receive from prospective and current clients, but it's also in several published research studies.”

Nationwide Lipitor lawsuits are currently under consideration for consolidation into a federal multidistrict litigation for pretrial proceedings (In re Lipitor (Atorvastatin) Litigation, MDL No. 2459 (Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation)). The lawsuits focus on the claim, supported by at least two research studies, that there is a link between the use of the drug and a type 2 diabetes risk. A 2011 American College of Cardiology study established a connection between the statin and the diabetes risk, and a January 2012 JAMA: Internal Medicine study highlighted the risk in women.**

The Rottenstein Law Group LLP encourages those who have taken Lipitor to download a free informational brochure that discusses potential Lipitor side effects and how to file a Lipitor lawsuit.
