Oklahomans Sue Companies Over Cholesterol Drug

Jun 27, 2003 | AP

Eight Oklahomans are suing two corporations and two Enid doctors over a cholesterol-lowering drug that was pulled off the market in 2001.

The Garfield County residents are suing Bayer Corporation, GlaxoSmithKline and doctors Bobby Kang and Don Gooch.

The lawsuit filed in Garfield County District Court says the companies knew or should have known Baycol was dangerous and risky.

The two doctors are accused of failing to properly monitor their patients after prescribing the drug.

The eight say they suffer muscle injuries, pain and weakness.

The drug was removed after being linked to a rare but life-threatening condition in which muscle cells are destroyed.
