FDA Warns that Lipitor Causes Increased Risk of Diabetes
Pfizer has been manufacturing Lipitor since 1996. Since that time Lipitor has become the best-selling drug ever, providing Pfizer with over $125 Billion in sales. Despite the enormous profits and widespread use, Pfizer failed to warn users of the dangers associated with the use of Lipitor.
In February 2012, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration forced Pfizer to add a warning to the Lipitor label about the link to an increase in the risk of diabetes. This warning came too late for many women who have taken Lipitor.
