In a word: side effects. It’s important to know what to expect from some prescription drugs, especially at times when you aren’t taking them to begin with, as well as what to watch out for while you’re taking them and how to deal with them when they do happen.
Unfortunately for patients, the most common side effects are the ones that are most dangerous for you and your family.
So, some side effects are things that happen when a drug youre taking isnt working properly. So if youve recently been taking statins and you begin to get sick, know that this may be a side effect.
What happens for a while after you stop taking a drug is that your body becomes desensitized to the drug, so you start getting more side effects. Some of the most common ones include high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and depression. But the most dangerous ones include heart arrhythmia, heart failure, and cardiac arrest.
Shepards side effect list is a good, comprehensive one that lists the most common side effects, and the risks associated with taking statins. It also explains every other type of side effect there is. But, as usual, it lists a lot of side effects that are most likely just normal, everyday side effects, rather than something more serious.
That’s right, all those statin side effects are normal. There is no big risk that you will develop a serious side effect from taking statins; all side effects are actually perfectly normal, as long as you know what to expect. The side effects that you should be aware of, though, are high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and depression. High blood pressure is definitely the most common one, with the other two being high cholesterol and depression.
High cholesterol is a major problem with statin treatment. Statins raise LDL levels, because they increase the amount of bad cholesterol in the blood, and LDL levels are the primary marker of cardiovascular disease. But high cholesterol is one of the most common side effects of statin treatment, and it’s a real problem. Statins have been associated with a risk of heart attack, stroke, and death.
That’s one of the reasons I think it’s so important to have great information on your statin side effects, and to monitor your cholesterol if you’re taking statins. That’s not to say you can’t have a little fun and enjoy a little healthy food when you’re on a diet, but you do need to watch your cholesterol.
So lets talk about some of the side effects. Its always hard to know what the side effects are going to be, but its not impossible to get sick from a statin. If youre on a LDL statin (that is, if your LDL is above 180) and you have heart disease, you can be at risk for stroke. If your LDL is below 40, you can have a risk of heart attack.
In the new trailer we see that the statins are not good for Colt. First of all, that they don’t take into account your cholesterol levels in determining how much of a risk there is. They take your average cholesterol level, which may not be the best indicator of your risk of heart disease. Secondly, if you are on a statin, your liver is going to produce more cholesterol so your body will try to compensate by making you feel worse rather than the opposite.
