Adverse Effects of Statin Drugs

My dad has got a heart attack last year. And the doctor has put him on a list of drugs and medication. One of the drugs is statin drugs. Previously lovastatin, now the more expensive rosuvastatin (Crestor), which could cause an increase in liver enzymes.

I’ve noticed that my old man can’t walk as fast, his reaction has certainly slowed down, his mental capacity has decreased, his attention span reduced.

This is a compilation of links to the adverse effect, negative effect, of statin drugs a.k.a. HMG-CoA Reductase Inhibitors.
