Bayer withdraws cholesterol-lowering drug

Mumbai, Aug. 8 (PTI) - Pharma major Bayer has withdrawn
all dosages of its cholesterol-lowering drug,
Baycol/Lipobay with immediate effect from throughout the
world market, except in Japan, following reports of side
effects involving muscular weakness.

The company was also withdrawing supplies of the product
currently in the market, Bayer said in a release here
today. The reason for the voluntary decision to withdraw
the drug lies in increasing reports of side effects
especially in patients being treated concurrently with
active substance Gemfibrozil despite a contraindication
and warning contained in the product information, Bayer
said. . . .
