In August 2003, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Crestor (rosuvastatin calcium), the latest of six cholesterol reducing drugs called statins. Crestor is approved as an adjunct therapy accompanied by a low-cholesterol diet and exercise program to reduce the overall level of bad cholesterol in the blood stream. It was also touted for raising levels of High-Density Lipoprotein Cholesterol (HDL-C)-good cholesterol-in many cases.
However, several consumer groups are asking the FDA to recall Crestor due in part to the reported serious complications within five months of Crestor's approval. These groups cited three patients who developed kidney failure or muscle damage while taking the approved doses of Crestor. One 39-year-old woman died of kidney failure and rhabdomyolysis. In studies prior to Crestor's approval, seven other people became ill with rhabdomyolysis.
