Esperion launched an information source on statin intolerance for physicians and patients. Many patients with elevated LDL-C are unable to benefit from statins, the current leading treatments, due to muscle-related side effects. Muscle pain or weakness are the most common cause for discontinuing therapy with statins. Approximately 3.5 million adults in the U.S. are estimated to have ceased therapy, due to muscle-related side effects and can be considered statin intolerant.
The statin intolerance site features physician and patient testimonial videos, leading scientific articles, and an infographic outlining facts of statin intolerance, cholesterol, and cardiovascular disease.
