馃崝 One of the most frequent inquiries during consultations is how long should I take cholesterol medication? The simple answer is for a long time, probably for life if appropriate. Firstly, it doesn't make sense to take it for just a few weeks. Lowering cholesterol relates to the patient's cardiological risk; if the risk is high and/or the levels are elevated, the treatment should continue. Always based on a healthy lifestyle 馃毚馃. We often observe inappropriate medical prescriptions of statins for just three months. These drugs require years to have a potent biological effect, namely reducing the possibility of heart馃挃 or brain馃 attack and death. The good news is that they effectively extend both quality and quantity of life, also avoiding hospitalizations and the need for vascular procedures. They are medications with decades of clinical experience and extensive safety.

It's important to consult with your cardiologist for a detailed clinical evaluation 馃┖ (this is the key to diagnosis), along with a 12-lead electrocardiogram and at least one blood test with the necessary determinations to rule out any concerns. All this information forms part of the basic necessary data to indicate appropriate treatment馃拪.
