There is really no cure-all for every ailment. A medication that relieves symptoms for one ailment may on the other hand cause side effects resulting in other discomfort or other serious consequences.
Crestor, for instance, has been prescribed for people with high LDL cholesterol, high total cholesterol, and triglycerides. In February 2010, the US FDA also approved Crestor to prevent cardiovascular events.
Crestor Rosuvastatin was also sold under the trade name R2 and has been scientifically linked to serious side effects such as heart attacks and heart failure. Other side effects include cardiomyopathy (deterioration of the myocardium), rhabdomyolysis (breakdown of muscle fibers), and ventricular dysfunction.
