Statin Drugs Could Turn You Into A Raging Maniac

| July 23, 2015

Statin drugs… there really are very few good things to say about these over-prescribed cholesterol-lowering drugs. Unless of course you jump on the mainstream’s bandwagon of “the benefits of these drugs far outweigh the risks”…

Then again, you and I both know that this simply is not true and that the so-called “benefits” of statin drugs are based on botched studies, like the JUPITER trial. In 2010, a group of doctors and researchers, led by Dr Michel de Lorgeril from France, stepped forward and accused JUPITER researchers of producing “flawed” trial results and of having commercial interests in the drug tested. It turned out that all these claims were true and, as a result, the JUPITER researchers admitted that the benefits of statins may have been exaggerated.

Still, millions of people are being given these side effect-ridden drugs based on exaggerated claims… I’d even go so far as to say fabricated study results.

A case in point involves the results of a recent study that exposes a frightening statin drug side effect that you’ll never read about in a mainstream newspaper: the link between statins and serious psychological disorders, including severe rage.

For the study, researchers followed older statin users for six months and found several disturbing cases of irritability and even aggression. According to their findings, women were more affected than men.

This is the same research team that previously published alarming case studies of rage among statins users in the Oxford Medical Journal. These horror stories included a 63-year-old man who destroyed his own home and a 59-year-old who had to stop driving because of crippling bouts of road rage.

This is not the first time we’ve warned you about the serious neurological damage these drugs inflict. In fact, researchers first noticed the relationship between low cholesterol and psychological disorders as far back as the 1980s. Since then, mounting evidence has shown that low cholesterol can interfere with the production of the feel-good hormone serotonin, a key neurotransmitter that helps regulate our moods.

A 2004 study found that the more people had their cholesterol lowered with statin drugs, the more likely they were to suffer from psychological problems like depression.

Of course, the real irony here is that depression and rage both increase your chances of suffering a heart attack — the very problem you’re trying to avoid by taking statins.

If there’s any good news, it’s that researchers have found that people who quit statin drugs start feeling like their old selves again pretty quickly. So if you’re taking a statin drug and have noticed any unusual mood changes, you need to schedule an immediate appointment with your doctor.

    I’ve “HAD” to use these drugs. My Cholesterol and Triglyceride levels reached 4600. Tell me, what else could have kept me alive?

    • Editor says:

      The question is: Did you ask your doctor about alternatives?

      Statin drugs are designed to lower cholesterol, not to lower triglyceride levels… So, you were given a drug not fit for the job to begin with.

      To start with niacin and omega-3s has been very effective to lower triglyceride levels, coupled with a weight loss programme, exercise, cutting down sugar and fructose consumption, limiting alcohol intake and consuming more fibre.
