If you use guidelines as an aide memoir rather than an edict, if you apply evidence based medicine to mild to moderate hypertension and primary prevention treatment of hyperlipidaemia, if you pay more attention to what the patients say about their symptoms, and less to their blood tests, you reduce your prescribing AND have happier patients, and they probably live just as long.
