Statin Drugs for Children

October 26, 2009

Is there anyone out there who can tell me their child has actually recieved a recommendation from their physician to start on statin drugs to prevent heart and circulation problems due to cholesterol problems? I am amazed that this is possible but…health care in America is not health care it is disease care. If there has been that recommendation made for your child were you also given a list of side effects of these drugs?  Please let me know. The recommendation  to screen children as young as two for cholesterol and to start on a statins 8-10 years of age was made to physicians some months ago.   Thanks, Coleen
