North Carolina Baycol lawyer

Baycol is prescribed to patients to block the production of cholesterol in their bloodstreams. The cholesterol can lead to heart disease and hardening of the arteries. Baycol, also known as cerivastatin sodium, has been linked to kidney failure, muscle cell damage, and at least 100 deaths since it was introduced to the market. Bayer A.G. Pharmaceutical, the manufacturer, voluntarily recalled Baycol on Aug. 8, 2001, due to reports of fatal rhabdomyolysis.
