Do You Really Need Maximum-Dose Lipitor? - Life Extension

In an effort to boost profits, Pfizer is convincing doctors to prescribe the strongest, riskiest, and most expensive dose of Lipitor to more and more.

The FDA pours far more money and manpower into rushing new drugs to the marketplace than into assuring the safety of our medications. In the current system, no. Did the FDA learn the lesson with Rezulin? Will it now investigate the safety of maximum-dose Lipitor before people are harmed? Not likely. Recent investigations reveal that the FDA’s ability to identify risks and ensure drug safety is severely compromised. So should we expect the FDA to investigate when an intensely marketed, highly potent, maximum-dose drug causes significant increases in liver injuries in two major studies? In a healthy system, yes.

Life Extension's mission is to help you stay younger and healthier longer.
