I have just had a discussion with mum about taking statins, she is going for a definite no to them (someone we know had bad side effects).
I know they are one of the most common drugs taken, and that they do have side effects, worse for some than others.
Has anyone not taken them when prescribed?
Has anyone not had side effects?
Looking for help - should I try to persuade mum to try them?
We know the benefits, the pros and the cons of them.
What does a daughter do? Thanks x
P.S a friend has been talking Plant Sterols as something to take instead! HAs anyone tried these in combinations with statins or on their own?
