The only risk factor for heart disease I have is my age(66).I was prescribed Crestor but am afraid to take it after reading consumer reviews on statins.Please advise.
The decision is yours alone.
You must remember that everybody responds differently to medicines and those with negative experiences are more likely to post reviews.
There are likely to be many others who have experienced positive health outcomes.
Your doctor has recommended you take Crestor, you should probably follow his/her advice. You can always stop treatment if you need to. All the best.
