Crestor Study shows more kidney problems: Link to article

A new study shows Crestor causes more kidney and muscle problems than rival medications.
The new study, based on side effects reported to the FDA, said kidney problems and muscle weakness were two to eight times more frequent among Crestor users than those taking other cholesterol-lowering medications like Lipitor, Zocor and Pravachol.

Results from the study published May 23, 2005 by the American Heart Association's journal Circulation can be found here.
