Default Zetia

Does anyone write about the positive effects of Zetia or any other medication. Every drug has side effects and the benefit vs. risk has to be considered. If the side effects are intolerable then don't take the medication. Heart attacks are a quick alternative way to go but, I have noticed in the Emergency Department that I run, there are many worse problems related to the plaque ruptures that I see like: loss of limbs, strokes that are survived but disfigure and disable you for the rest of your life, blindness, etc. So, when you quit a med after three days because your tummy hurts, you might ask your physician or pharmasist if these are transient or you are one of the low percentage of people that should discontinue the medication. Just an observation from a new zetia patient. I will try it for a while and see what happens. If it sucks I will post my note...lol.
