FDA Warnings - Zocor and Crestor
xring posted:

Amazing FDA admission:
"Overall, the FDA said it believes the benefits of statin drugs, when used as recommended, outweigh their potential risks."
Politicians should serve two terms.
One in office and one in prison.

Hi Xring,

Thanks for the informative post, as always.

It makes me thankful that we, on this board, are off, or getting off statins, as their need is replaced by incredible health from the much more effective lifestyle.

Best regards, EngineerGuy

I think X is over reacting. It says right there that crestor damages muscles no more than any other statin. There ya go. And those people who were damaged from this statin were sick people and had stuff like diabetes. So if doctors only prescribed drugs for healthy people these problems would be avoided. Whew! I was worried there for a minute. It isn't nice to alarm old ladies, X.

P.S. The article also pointed out an obscure scientific fact--the larger the dose the more damage occurs. Scientists must have worked late into the night to figure out that one.
