At the heart of general practice since 1960

Does the statin dose matter?

It was fascinating to read the statin letter from Hull (March 22) and well done for some general practice research.

The results, however, must be tempered by Bandolier 121 which seemed to show 'the cholesterol-lowering capacity of statins was generally unaffected by dose used, or by use of fixed dose or dose tritration'.

It would be interesting to see the manufacturer's data for increased dose.
