According to MSNBC, the Food and Drug Administration (â€śFDAâ€ť) recently added warnings to the popular cholesterol drug Zocor, cautioning users of potentially harmful side effects. Â After conducting a study, the FDA found that patients who take higher dosages of the drug are more likely to suffer muscle damage than those who take lower dosages.Â The dosage levels of Zocor range from 5 to 80 milligrams.Â Currently, 12% of the 2.1 million Americans who have a prescription for Zocor take the highest dosage. The FDA study, based on clinical trials, studies, reports of side effects by users and prescription data, revealed that when the victims suffer muscle damage, they can experience pain, tenderness, and weakness.Â Severe forms of the injury cause kidney damage.
