Is anyone here taking Statins? Either as part of the MS-STAT trial ( https://www.nihr.ac.uk/documents/case-studies/ms-stat-impact-case-study/21482 ) or just because – of simvastatin 80mg or any other dose of atorvastatin for that matter?
I have persuaded my GP to give me atorvastatin (one of the same class of drugs) as it has – apparently – a better side effect profile than simvastatin.
I am interested t know what – if any – side effect the 80mg simvastatin dose gives commonly. Side-effects listed in data sheets seem to bear only a loose resemblance to real life as they tend to be massively over-reported because of the typical clinical trial population and the requirements – necessarily strict – for reporting on trial, which leads to anything and everything being recorded and reported with no filter.
