Are you one of the millions of people who has taken the cholesterol-lowering drug called Lipitor? If so, you'll want to watch this video about the increased risk of developing type 2 diabetes. For more information, visit our website at http://www.lawmed.com/. And don't forget to watch our other videos at http://www.youtube.com/hensonfuerst/. (Principal office of Henson & Fuerst, PA: 2501 Blue Ridge Road, Raleigh, NC 27607) Do you—or have you ever taken—Lipitor? If so, you’ll want to watch this video to learn about drug side effects that could threaten your life. Hello, I’m David Henson, a partner with HensonFuerst Attorneys. Lipitor (atorvastatin calcium) is prescribed to patients for cholesterol management. Pfizer, Inc., the drug’s manufacturer, markets Lipitor as a medication that can lower the risk of heart attack, stroke, certain types of heart surgery, and chest pains in patients who have, or are at risk for, heart disease. But because the drug can also cause increased blood glucose levels, patients who take Lipitor may face increased risks of developing Type 2 diabetes. We’ve seen this in women who have taken Lipitor for at least 30 days, especially within the last 6 months of use. Lipitor is part of a class of cholesterol-lowering drugs known as statins. In 2012, the FDA released a report citing serious health risks for people using statins, including Lipitor. Those risks include development of diabetes, and worsening glycemic control. As a result, statin drug packaging was updated to include information about these risks. Before then, Lipitor’s label failed to warn patients of any potential relation between changes in blood sugar levels and taking Lipitor. Despite scientific data suggesting that Lipitor was linked to the development of Type 2 diabetes, the drug was marketed as safe and effective. If you are a woman who took Lipitor and developed Type 2 diabetes, contact HensonFuerst Attorneys today to discuss your legal options at 1-800-4-LAWMED.

Now 85, Helen Thomas went on statins about five years ago. She had the same issue as millions of Americans: high cholesterol. "I did have, yes, the doctor recommended that I take them. A lot of my friends had been on statins," says Thomas. Statins proved to be a game-changer when it comes to treating cholesterol. "They are the most proven drugs, with the most data behind them that show they actually reduce cardiovascular events such as heart attacks, stroke and cardiovascular death by reducing the cholesterol," says Dr. Brian Taschner, cardiologist with Lee Memorial Health System. Now the rules are changing when it comes to who takes them. New guidelines were recently released by the American College of Cardiology and the American Heart Association. "They make it easier for physicians. The previous guidelines have a somewhat difficult algorithm to memorize, to figure out which cholesterol goals were good for which patients. These guidelines try to simplify the process," says Dr. Taschner. For years doctors prescribed statins based mostly on a patient's cholesterol levels, especially the LDL or bad cholesterol. The new guidelines have a broader focus- looking at patient's overall risk and then breaking statin use into four categories based on statistics. The first group covers people with pre-existing heart disease; the second, people with significant, elevated cholesterol. The third category includes people who are middle age with type 2 diabetes. And the fourth group is primary prevention: which is people who don't have cardiovascular disease, but are at high risk to within 10 years. "If they're in one of these four groups, they should be treated. And we decide on more intense or less intense statin therapy, rather than targeting a number which we were doing before," says Dr. Taschner. The number of statin-takers under these guidelines will jump from about 15% today to 31%. Doctor's hope playing the stats will help people like Thomas lower the odds of a heart health crisis. "It's been alright - so it's been normal within the normal range," says Thomas.

Doctors say a new study by the makers of the statin drug Crestor may help identify more patients with hidden risk of heart attack and stroke. The study released at a meeting of the American Heart Association Sunday [November 9th] suggests that even people with normal or low cholesterol levels stand to benefit from taking a cholesterol lowering statin drug when a separate blood test identifies high levels of arterial inflammation.

Conspiracy between Drug companies and mediical profession over drugs for unnecessary cholestrol control revealed. Statin From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia This article is about the group of cholesterol-lowering drugs. Statins (or HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors) are a class of drugs used to lower cholesterol levels by inhibiting the enzyme HMG-CoA reductase, which plays a central role in the production of cholesterol in the liver. Statins are the most prescibed drug in the history of medicene. Controversy Some scientists believe the statins are overused. Their use has expanded into areas where they provide lesser benefit, and lesser evidence of benefit. The lower the risk of cardiovascular events, the lower the ratio is of benefits to costs. The US market for statins nearly tripled when the National Cholesterol Education Program revised its guidelines to recommend statins as primary prevention. Although the panel cited randomized trials to support statin therapy for primary prevention of occlusive cardiovascular disease, a report in Lancet notes, "not one of the studies provides such evidence."  Journalists have questioned the interests of the doctors who made such recommendations, as eight of the nine doctors on the panel were discovered to have been paid by statin manufacturers. A smaller group of scientists, The International Network of Cholesterol Skeptics, question the lipid hypothesis and argue that elevated cholesterol has not been adequately shown to cause heart disease. These organizations maintain that statins are not as beneficial or safe as suggested. The beneficial effects of statins are suggested to be due to their working as vitamin D analogues.

The medications our doctors prescribe are supposed to make us better. Yet, some drugs have defects and cause illness, injury or even death. It is the manufacturer's duty to thoroughly test drugs before they are placed on the market, and the FDA's responsibility to ensure that the drugs you are prescribed are safe. Unfortunately, countless dangerous drugs manage to make it onto the shelves and into our homes. Contact Us: http://thelawfirm.com Zofran - is a member of a class of medications that is known as 5-HT3 receptor antagonists. It works by reducing the effects of a substance in the body that is known as serotonin. Serotonin is known to cause nausea and ultimately vomiting and since many women get morning sickness during pregnancy, Zofran was prescribed. Zofran has been on the market for more than 20 years, but unfortunately the drug was never adequately tested or FDA approved for use by pregnant mothers. The FDA originally approved the drug in the United States in 1992, for use in post surgery nausea and by cancer victims. Despite lack of testing and approval, the manufacturer of Zofran, GlaxoSmithKline, marketed this drug to women who were pregnant and made millions of dollars selling their drug to this unapproved market. According the Department of Justice website, and Wikipedia, the maker of Zofran paid billions in fines to settle allegations about illegal promotion and kickbacks associated with their drugs. Xarelto - (rivaroxaban) is a drug that was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in July 2011. Xarelto was touted as an improvement over warfarin, an anticoagulant that has been in use for several decades. Unfortunately, since then, the FDA has received a large number of ‘adverse event reports’. This means that in 2012, over 750 serious injuries and deaths were reported. There have likely been many thousands more since. It is true that any drug can have adverse side effects. There are two major problems with Xarelto, however. First, and most alarming, is that people taking Xarelto may have uncontrollable bleeding. While this is a risk shared by all blood thinners, there is currently no antidote in the event of a serious incident. Warfarin bleeding, by contrast, can be staunched rather quickly via the administration of vitamin K. There are many who believe that Xarelto should not have been released with this important safety measure in place. Lipitor - A study conducted by the Women’s Health Initiative of 150,000 postmenopausal women found that those taking a statin were almost 50% percent more likely to be diagnosed with diabetes. Testosterone - According to new recommendations, millions of men are candidates for Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT). The level at which doctors can recommend testosterone therapy has been increased to 300ng/dL, which also greatly increases the pool of available consumers. This has helped testosterone therapy grow into a $2 billion business in the past decade. Basically, if you are 45+, have a desk job and don’t exercise, you are a likely candidate for testosterone therapy. Millions of men take testosterone supplements, but few are aware of the risks. A study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) found that men using a testosterone treatment were 30 percent more likely to have a heart attack, stroke, or die after three years of use. Risperdal - (drug name Risperidone) is a pharmaceutical drug that has been widely prescribed for a range of psychological uses from schizophrenia to ADHD. While it is not known exactly how it works on the brain, it is believed that Risperdal blocks certain receptors on some of the brain’s nerves, thus altering communication normally done by chemical neurotransmitters. Breast Growth - Gynecomastia Research supports allegations that Risperdal can cause the development of breasts (gynecomastia) in young males. When given to adolescent boys at doses commonly used for the treatment of psychotic symptoms, the hormone prolactin is produced at abnormally high levels. Prolactin stimulates breast development. In addition to noticeable breast tissue, gynecomastia causes pain, nipple discharge, and psychological trauma. When the failure to meet safety standards results in injury, patients can file defective drug and medical negligence lawsuits. It is your right to hold the manufacturers of these defective drugs accountable for any harm they cause when they are prescribed and administered according to a doctor's orders. If you think you have sustained an illness or injury due to a defective medication, you may be entitled to compensation for the harms caused.

Researchers did not obtain signed consent forms, and medical personnel said Pfizer did not tell parents their children were getting the experimental drug. Eleven children died and others suffered disabling injuries including deafness, muteness, paralysis, brain damage, loss of sight, slurred speech.

Drug maker Pfizer Inc.(NYSE:PFE) reports that it has begun paying victims and their families affected by its fatal 1996 meningitis study in northern Nigeria. Nigeria's government and the New York-based pharmaceutical company released a $75 million settlement in 2009. The company on Thursday announced it made a $175,000 payment to the families of four children who died. The families submitted DNA to show the dead were their children. In 1996, Pfizer treated 100 meningitis-infected children with an experimental antibiotic called Trovan. Eleven children died during the clinical trial, performed during an outbreak of the disease. Lawsuits filed against the company alleged some received a dose lower than recommended, leaving many children with brain damage, paralysis or slurred speech. Pfizer denied the charges. Pfizer has a potential upside of 36.6% based on a current price of $17.47 and an average consensus analyst price target of $23.86.

by Dana Fowle Aired November 9, 2016 Poncey-Highland - Splitting your prescription medications can save money. But it's not the right choice for every pill. I'm all for cutting costs and doctors today know that's important to you, too. But, you have to use caution because you don't want saving money to cost you your health. First, know that there are different opinions on whether this is good practice. Insurance companies are all for it. The FDA doesn't recommend it. There's a fear that you might get confused about the correct dosage, but it recognizes that it happens. And there are many doctors who are on board with it. If you plan to do it, talk with your doctor first. But let's get back to why folks do it. Let's look at the math. Consumer Reports looked at a number of prescriptions. Let's highlight this one -- Lipitor. It says the average cost is $124 a month. If you split that in half you can save more than $62 a month. Often different doses are priced nearly the same. Cut them in half and cut your costs in half. But splitting pills with a knife is not recommended because it doesn't always assure a nice even split. Buying a pill splitter is what you'll want to do. Your insurance may even pay for that. It can cost as little as three bucks. Now let's get guidance from Dr. Nicolas Beaulieu of Highland Urgent Care and Family Practice on which pills are OK to split because some are not. "If a pill is scored it generally means it can be cut. Again, ask your doctor or pharmacist. The pills you want to avoid cutting will say XL, XR, SR. That means extended release, sustained release or enteric coated. Those are pills that will be designed to release slowly or in the case of the enteric coated pills to not release its medication until it is through the stomach itself and into the intestines," he said. Dr. Beaulieu says if you cut a pill that is designed to be time-released, you can get the medication all at once and overdose. Again, do not cut - pills that say XL, XR or SR. Examples would be your antihistamine or pain medication.

Source: http://www.reviewjournal.com/life/health/what-you-need-know-about-cholesterol There are 100 pennies in a dollar and 100 years in a century. In addition to being the square of ten, the number 100 serves to mark milestones. However, when it comes to our cholesterol level, gone are the days where our physician would prescribe medications for levels greater than 100. Newly released guidelines by the two major American heart societies are now stating that bad cholesterol levels “are nothing but a number.” However, this means that 1 in 3 Americans will fall under the category of needing to take a cholesterol lowering medication! On our next visit, will our doctor tell us that we need one? Let’s take a closer look at what this may mean to you: Dr. Nina’s What You Need To Know About Your Cholesterol: Do I fall under the new recommendations to take medications? If we have heart disease, are over the age of 40 years and have diabetes, or have an increased risk for heart disease we may very well be receiving a new prescription at our next doctor’s visit. Risk factors for cardiovascular disease include age, male gender, a family history of heart disease, smoking, poorly-controlled high blood pressure, obesity and physical inactivity. The American Heart Association’s website has an easy-to-use risk calculator that can help assess where we fall. Why change the guidelines? The answer is simple: to help us live longer and healthier lives. The new guidelines state that when cholesterol-lowering medications are combined with a heart-healthy diet, regular exercise habits and avoidance of tobacco products, the risk for heart attack, stroke and death decrease. They aim for a “whole-istic” approach, not an arbitrary cut-off of 100. What is a statin? It is a cholesterol-lowering drug that inhibits an enzyme in the liver that is responsible for synthesizing bad cholesterol. High levels of bad cholesterol accelerate the development of fatty plaques (atherosclerosis) inside blood vessel walls. This creates a blockage that reduces blood flow. Think of it as the thin portion of an hourglass. Blood flow is similar to the opening line of Days of Our Lives “Like sands through the hourglass, so are the days of our lives.” By preventing plaque buildup that will hinder blood flow to your heart, you will likely have more days in your life. Additionally, statins also decrease inflammation. Although inflammation is necessary to protect our body from bacterial and viral invaders, it causes cholesterol to become trapped within plaques. Without inflammation it is likely that cholesterol would move freely through the body as nature intended. Still not convinced? Imagine if we scratched our arm daily. We would see an inflammatory response that may include redness and bleeding. Over time, the damage would accumulate and become blistered or scarred. So why are we seeing an increase in inflammation and heart disease? Experts suspect the advent of highly processed carbohydrates, processed foods and smoking. Do statins have side effects? The most common side effect is muscle pain that manifests as soreness, weakness or muscle fatigue. It can range from mild discomfort to severe limitations that may prevent us from walking or climbing up a flight of stairs. If this occurs, speak with our doctor. The good news is that a different statin may work for us. We may have to go through 2 or 3 different medications before finding the one that we can tolerate. Other less common reactions to be aware of include rashes, digestive problems, liver damage and increased blood sugars. The take-home message is that we should have a discussion with our doctor to determine if we, or a family member, would benefit from taking a statin. The goal is to get the right patient on the right statin at the right dose. These drugs are not a silver bullet that will eliminate our risk for heart disease, stroke or death. And some people may not be able to tolerate their side effects. But when combined with other healthy lifestyle interventions, they can potentially scare off the werewolf.
