I have been asked to make an appointment to see my Doctor to discuss the prescribing of Statins.
I have read of many side affects and Doctors with valued opinions appear to dismiss there use except in extreme situations. eg after a heart attack or when Cholesterol
are extremely high. These factors do not apply to me my Ch. reading is 4.9.
Any advice or information on the subject would be appreciated ?
A little late in responding to this thread, but I stopped taking simvastatin some time ago as I was experiencing a grest deal of muscle pain. The main reason for this post is this report in the 'Mail'Have benefits of statins been exaggerated?
