    Statins: Indications and Uses, Safety and Modes of Action

    مُساهمة من طرف d-forum في 25/03/11, 05:00 pm


    This book focuses on statins which are a relatively new group of drugs used to lower blood cholesterol levels. A high cholesterol level
    increases a person’s risk of having a heart attack or stroke. The
    long-term use of statins reduces the risk of such an event and can
    increase the life expectancy of
    people with a history of heart disease. The statins work by blocking an
    enzyme in the body that is involved in the production of LDL
    cholesterol, especially in the liver. This enzyme is known as HMG
    coenzyme A reductase. The statins are the most effective group of drugs
    for lowering the levels of LDL cholesterol in the body. Potential side-effects include muscle cramps and gastrointestinal upsets. These are usually resolved on temporarily lowering the dose. Liver enzyme
    derangements may occur, which generally return to normal after briefly
    discontinuing the drug. Some report headaches. Other side-effects occur
    rarely
