In Reply to: Mevacor and Pravachol OTC?? posted by Dave on June 28, 2000 at 13:08:35:
If they are anything like Lipitor , yes it is a bad idea seeing the side effects , it may be good for the doctors because they will have more people in their offices complaining that they bad and then they will prescribe more medicine which the drug makers love .It is a never ending circle with the drug companies getting rich . I am totally against drugs by any means but after seeing the effects of the cholesterol lowering
drugs I certainly against statins that mess with your liver .
: The FDA votes next month on whether to allow over the counter sales of mevacor and pravachol. What does everybody think about this?
: I think that this is extremely dangerous and puts a lot of people in danger from unwise use of these drugs and their side effects.
