SJS has been linked to Crestor. Stevens-Johnson Syndrome, also known as (SJS) is a potentially deadly skin disease that usually results from a drug reaction. SJS is related to a similar disease called Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis. SJS results from a sulfa drug-related allergic reaction.
Both SJS (Stevens Johnson Syndroe) and TEN (Necrolysis) can be deadly. Even when not fatal, SJS and TEN are extremely painful. SJS and TEN are caused by an allergic reaction to a drug containing sulfa. Bextra contains sulfa and causes Stevens Johnson Syndrome.
As a result of Crestor side effects, two major healthcare insurers with over 15 million patients have refused to reimburse for Crestor. Still reeling from 31 cases of fatal
rhabdomyolysis caused by Baycol which was removed from the market in
2001, healthcare is taking a more cautious and conservative approach.
Other healthcare companies are placing Crestor in the highest tier of
three out-of-pocket categories to discourage Crestor prescriptions. It is clear that the health care
industry is concerned about Crestor side-effect lawsuits, and they should be. Lawyers are now organizing to bring claims for these cases.
In Sweden, regional governmental drug advisors recommended against the
use of the drug. The committees said in a statement that newer drugs
such as Crestor were not recommended because they did not meet the
criteria of documented safety and cost effectiveness. The decision was
unusual, because the representatives for Sweden's regional governments
were unanimous in their decision.
