So cliff means ?......?       'Crib' maybe?
Sorry, but I'm thick.

My 'won't be told' husband is still taking his statins as though they are sweeties - and constantly complaining about aches and pains in his legs!  Still has this old fashioned conviction that doctor knows best.
What can you do?  If they didn't come in a foil strip I'd substitute them with homeopathic pills or aspirins!

Would he read anything "official" that pointed out that muscle pains are a side effect of statins?

Doubtful Patty, as you'll remember from past posts I'm still fighting a losing battle with his weight through his insistance that fruit contains no carb.  He refuse to even look at Davis Cavan's book on 'curing' type 2s so all I can do is feed us low carb meals and wait for the inevitable.
I sometimes wonder why I'm keeping the cantankarous old bu88er alive, only to have him get dementia and drive me completly crackers.

Congratulations to all you sensible people who refuse them.
