Hydroxycut WINS over Simvastatin

Just today one of my patients chose to pay $25 plus tax for a 30 day supply of Hydroxycut, an over the counter product containing herbals for weight loss which has not been evaluated by the FDA. She declined refilling her cholesterol medication Simvastatin (Zocor) which was $10 for a 90 day supply.

Sometimes patient choices really puzzle me.

Just found the blog and going back through posts. I never fill my statin prescription - why? Cus after two weeks I feel like I'm 99 and that's on a good day! I ache all over, have a banging headache and am depressed as hell. I'd rather have a bloody heart attack!
