Statin side effects caused by patients' 'expectation of harm'


did we really need pharma funded research to tell us that patients report more side effects of any drug-not just statins -if they are expecting them/looking out for them/not very convinced of their benefits in first place? a few years in general practice makes that blindingly obvious.research into solutions to this would be welcome .the commentary/advice in the last paragraph is practically a job description for what we are already doing all day anyway and is obviously not enough!
