The future and more from Richard Sprague

Clayton Cramer’s BLOG has a summary of the recent news about Zocor and memory loss.

His conclusion: avoid statins unless you absolutely need them.

I’m less inclined to jump to such a quick conclusion. Zocor is definitely a powerful drug, but with zillions of users taking it for many years, the adverse effects must be very low if they exist at all.

    I think that whenever you are taking a medicine there needs to be a good reason. All of the statins have some potential hazards, as do most prescription drugs. If you don’t need it, why take the risk?
