Crestor is classified as a statin and is used to lower high cholesterol. In 2004, public advocacy group Public Citizen petitioned the FDA to ban Crestor (known generically as rosuvastatin) because of concerns about side-effects. In its letter, Public Citizen cited seven cases of life-threatening rhabdomyolysis and nine cases of kidney failure or kidney damage linked to Crestor.
