Hi, my name's Dr Warrick Bishop. And I'd like to take a moment to talk with you about stopping medications, statins and other drugs.
From time to time I have patients come back to see me and they say, Doc, I've stopped my medication. They tell me quite proudly, actually, because they've made an adult decision. Well, I'm all for conversation. I'm all for people not having side effects from medications, and I'm all for people knowing exactly why they should take their tablets. But could you please if you get put on a tablet for a particular reason, please don't make a unilateral decision to stop it. Please talk to the person who put you on it so you have a clear risk and benefit analysis. It could cost your life. It's a really big deal. Until next time. Please take your tablets.
If you'd like a little bit more information hit the link below. I've done a podcast on the same topic. Till next time. Good health. Take your tablets and please don't die from a heart attack. Goodbye.
