Baycol is a prescription drug manufactured
by Bayer A.G. Pharmaceuticals. Baycol belongs
to the statin class of
drugs, which lower cholesterol by blocking certain
enzymes. It was widely prescribed to lower cholesterol

voluntarily recalled Baycol on August 8, 2001.
drugs have been known to cause muscle cell damage
and, in some cases,
a condition called rhabdomyolysis that results
in muscle cell breakdown. The contents of muscle

occurs ten times

and has lead to more than 30 deaths.

the drug, Bayer reaffirmed

said that no serious side effects should occur.
