dc.description.abstractPatients have been stopping their statins without medical advice, in the wake of a media report in November 2013 in which United States-based commentators criticised the use of statins for various reasons, including their failure to reduce mortality, inappropriate promotion and inappropriate prescription.1 While rebuttal occurred in subsequent media reporting and by the National Heart Foundation of Australia (NHF), general practitioners continued to see patients who intended to discontinue statin therapy on the basis of the original report.
