Statin the bleeding obvious


Yawn Aren’t you guys bored of this kind of Brexit-like polarised debates , especially on primary prevention with statin ? As I wrote before , I am more fascinated by this nocebo effect and the less one told the patient about statin side effects , the less likely they would have them . Let the pharmacists do the ‘shit job’ of hard selling high dose statins to them . The government is pushing it anyway . Ultimately, again , it is not about deserve , it is about what one believes.
