Side effects of statins - Not attributable to the drugs

According to a new study published in European Journal of Preventive Cardiology finfs that only a very small minority of side effects have been observed by the cholesterol-lowering drugs that are very much attributable to them. The researchers found out that every patient have reported some kind of side effects while the trials. This is a major hint about statins consumption. It is not attributable to the drugs. This side effect might or might not harm to the users. Dr Judith Finegold from the National Heart and Lung Institute in London, explains, “No, we think that our results will help improve the patient-doctor consultation. We believe that patients should be empowered to make their own decisions, but we must first make sure they have top quality unbiased information. This is why we call on drug regulators to highlight in the long lists of side effects those few whose rate is incrementally greater than that experienced with a dummy tablet.”
