Hi Ed,

As I mentioned in a previous thread, here is the problem I have with drugs, side effects, and doctors.

Many times, doctors will blow off side effects that are definitely associated with a drug like statins.

http://kendrive.blog.co.uk/2007/09/13/back_to_statins~2971602/

Sorry, this isn't the best link but the information you see is coming from the Washington Post and statistics are quoted. At one point, I had a direct link but of course, I can't find it.

Anyway, if doctors are routinely blowing off complaints about major side effects, then it seems that something that is listed as rare may be occurring more frequently.

Also, I saw a statistic that only 2 to 10% of all drug side effects are ever reported to the FDA so again, that makes me question whether something that is reported as rare actually occurs alot more often.

Not sure what the deal is in your area, the UK as an FYI.

Just so people know, I have never taken any of these drugs.
