why drug makers dont want people with liver diases to use statins when nobody, even fda, is concerned about it and refuse to remove hepatotoxicity from the boxes paper?generics remove that....
please read all article, very interesting
When I discussed the lack of evidence of hepatotoxicity of statins with a high-ranking US Food
and Drug Administration (FDA) official
(who asked not to be quoted), the official
replied that the FDA is no longer concerned about statins causing hepatotoxicity. When I asked why the package inserts
still contained the language, I learned that
only the manufacturer can request a label
change and the FDA can then consent to
the change; the agency cannot unilaterally
delete language on a package insert
