FDA Issues New Warning On Statin Drugs

Now we will all be wondering about our statin pills. The Food and Drug Administration has issued new warnings for all statin drugs. In addition to muscle damage, memory loss, confusion, and diabetes are listed as possible statin side effects. This much has been reported by WebMD.

Medscape also has reported the warnings are for the entire drug class. “Brand name and generic versions of statin drugs must carry these warnings on their labels, the FDA today announced.” This is good news for some people that have been resisting their doctors, but do not stop until your doctor knows about this.

This was not intended for tonight, but I felt this should be publicized.
