lipitor lawsuit attorneysIf you or a loved one took Lipitor and subsequently were diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, you may have a substantial claim and be entitled to significant compensation. This is especially true if you are a woman and took Lipitor in North Dakota or Minnesota and a number of other states.

Lipitor is a drug used to inhibit the production of bad cholesterol to prevent heart disease. Lipitor has been found to significantly increase the risk of type II diabetes especially for postmenopausal women. A series of clinical studies published over the past 10 years have documented the Lipitor diabetes risk and prompted the FDA to release a Drug Safety Communication in February of 2012 to warn patients and doctors of Lipitor’s hazards.

Lipitor is one of the most commonly-used medications in the United States. Over 21 million Americans rely on Lipitor and other similar drugs to lower heart disease risks., including one in four Americans over the age of 45.
