Side Effects of Taking Statins
About 20% of adults over 45 are taking a statinmedication. But should they be.and are they all benefitting from ité We talked to an expert to find out, and we'rebringing you the bottom line on what everybody should know about taking statin medications. Hi, I'm Pilar Gerasimo with a Bottom LineExpert report on some of the dangerous side effects associated with a class of cholesterolloweringdrugs known as statins. I'm here with Suzanne Steinbaum, the director of Women'sHeart Health at Lenox Hill in New York City.
I've heard that statins have been describedby some experts as the most dangerous drug on the market. I've heard also that aboutone in four adults over 45 are currently taking them. So it strikes me that there must besome either very underpublicized risks associated with statins.or we're just not getting thewhole story. Every medication has a risk and a benefit.If the risks or side effects outweigh the benefits, that makes the drug dangerous. Therehave been a lot of people who do not need statins who have been given them, and thatmakes this drug dangerous for those people. What are some of the side effects associatedwith statinsé
One of the most common side effects is muscleaches or body aches, joint pain, oftentimes people feel them in their legs. Some otherside effects are elevated liver tests, which could be a problem, but once the statins arestopped, usually those enzymes or liver tests come down. There could be kidney abnormalitiesif doses of statins are too high. Some people describe fog brain, really sort of this inabilityto think, and again, when the statin is stopped, these symptoms go away. But those are themost common things we see in people taking statins. What about the special risks for women takingstatinsé I've heard that particularly with
healthy women, taking statins can increasetheir risk for diabetes. I'm glad you asked that question, becausethe headline said quot;Statins Lead to Diabetes in Women,quot; but in that particular study, itlooked at women who were at risk for diabetes in the first place. They were given statins,and over time, their diabetes developed. Healthy women shouldn't be taking statins in the firstplace, but if they are, they're not at risk for diabetes. Wasn't there also a recent study that showedthere are actually more people being harmed by taking statins unnecessarily than peoplewithout preexisting conditions that were being
saved by themé I mean, are millions of peoplejust wasting their money and increasing their risk at the same timeé There are many people taking statins who reallydon't need to be on them, but we know for sure that for people who have had a heartattack or heart disease or stents, statins are lifesaving. If you're at intermediaterisk for heart disease and have risk factorsâ€”high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes,smoking, family history, sedentary lifestyle, stressâ€”and you fit into this category, thena statin should be considered. Short of that, it's not for you.
The bottom line on statinsâ€”they're not rightfor everyone, particularly if you don't have more than one risk factor. And they can carrysome pretty serious side effects. So to be on the safe side, it's best to check withyour and make sure that statins are right for you. For more advice on a healthierlife, go to BottomLineHealth .
Medication statins muscle aches
Do you take statinsé Do your muscles acheéYou're not alone Muscle pain not well defined in most statinstudies Shereen Jegtvig writing for Reuters reportedthat studies evaluating cholesterollowering drugs might find more muscle problems if theydid a better job of defining and asking about muscle pain, suggests a new review. Researchers say 10 to 25 percent of realworldpatients on statins report having muscle problems, but al trials consider these side effectsto be rare. â€œA lot of patients complain about . . . muscleaching while they're on statins,â€�
Paul D. Thompson told Reuters Health. Thompson, who worked on the study, is chiefof cardiology at Hartford in Connecticut. Comment: I see at least one patient a daywho complains of muscle aches while on statins.
