Statins - cholesterol lowering drugs

back to healthread    

Statin medications include Lipitor, Zocor, Prevastin and more.  They are generally given to individuals with a total cholesterol level of over 200 but lately even those with cholesterol levels at 170 are prescribed these medications.  There is more and more evidence coming to light to suggest these drugs are not only ineffective for preventing heart attack but may have many undesirable side effects.
