No one specifially asked me if I was taking a statin. But the case manager did tell me to bring in every single drug I was taking, including all over the counter meds and all supplements. In addition, my chart is computerized so, unless a doc outside of that clinic system prescribed a statin, they would already have it on record.
I voted yes, I was asked, even though no one actually said, "Are you taking a statin."
That's probably a safe assumption on your part since the inadvisability of mixing PIs with statins is old news. I'm more curious about what alternatives were offered to people who were taking a statin before tx.
I remember filling out the usual InTake forms, where I listed all the medications I was on, on the first appt at my Treatment Clinic.
But then, also, when I ordered my meds ( Pegasys, Ribavirin and Victrelis) from the Specialty Pharmacy, I spoke with a very nice Pharmacist, who also asked me to list any and all medications I was on.
When I told her I was not on any other medications she said, "okay, good", and I liked the way she was very careful and specific about that question~
I wasn't asked but I have been seeing my GI since 2003. Even when I wasn't treating I would see him once a year so he already knew I was not taking a statin. I was taking anti-seizure medication at the beginning of 2011 and he cautioned me about the interaction between it & Incivek. I don't take that med anymore :)
I wasn't taking anything but an aleve every once in a while, but no was not asked about a statin.
