Are people aware that they can find the latest information of drug side effects, including statins on the MHRA website?
I have noticed that there are many people enquiring about statin side effects here. When I started looking into statin side effects for my mum I found this government website http://www.mhra.gov.uk - it has a wealth of up to date information on all drugs including statins. Some of the info isn't even on the docmentation that comes with the drugs as it is issued here before the actual paperwork can be updated. If anyone is getting the brush off from a medical professional I suggest they print out some of the MHRA official advice and pronouncements in support of their concerns. Medical professionals and PATIENTS can also report their own suspected side effects directly on this site through a yellow card system.
