How bayer explain to the press regarding the withdrawal of BAYCOL?
Asked by Kera Brayboy 1 year ago.

That's a ways back but a good question. The press dealt with it as they do most anything..........sensationalize it. I believe that there was a rebound effect due to the fact that Bayer "pushed" Baycol very hard in a very lucrative market and began about the time that most pharmaceutical Co.'s began to advertise heavily: trying to appeal to people to demand these products from their Physicians. One could gather that the vast number of "statins" on the market, produce the same adverse effects that Baycol does/did.............only more frequently. Bayer did the right thing.

Long term use of baycol medicine?
i took bacol for a long time, and at the same time was prescribed vioxx also, i have side effects from the two medicines, and i am trying to seperate the two injuries, as a result of both recalled medicines Asked by Keenan Brucz 1 year ago.

If you are currently alive without renal failure or were not hospitalized for rhabdomyolysis it is unlikely you have an injury from Baycol (cerivastatin) which was removed from the US market in 2001. It was made by Bayer. Vioxx (rofecoxib) by Merck was removed in late 2004. The issues were related to thrombotic events (heart attacks) while using this medicine. If you did not suffer a heart attack while on Vioxx you will have no claim. Answered by Alphonso Pao 1 year ago.
