what happens if you stop taking your a statin drug?
Doctors tell me that I have to take a statin drug for the rest of my life. What would happen if I stopped taking it. Would my cholesterol spike or just return to its former high level? would I keel over dead?

Look at Bill Clinton he stopped and Had to have a quatro by pass surgery. You will probably have a heart attack or stroke.

Don't listen to the "nurse". There are numerous, well done studies that show the benefit (in certain populations) if statin therapy.

If you do choose to stop, your cholesterol will return to a higher level, no "spike".

If you stop taking your statin, your CHOL will go up. Yes. Are you having side effects? In which case I'm sure they can find an alternative for you, but statin is a very good drug...it reduces the risks of strokes and heart attacks. Even though you won't keel over dead it does increase your risk of high CHOL meaning heart disease, stroke, PV disease and you will put yourself at risk and eventually one of THOSE things could make you keel over dead. Your choice.

The pharmaceutical company who makes it will be very upset and try to figure out another way to get you back into their clutches!

Seriously, though...the other answers about the limited benefits of statin drugs and the very real threat to your overall health that they pose is no joke.

If you really want to find out whether you're in danger of a heart attack, ask your doctor about a test for small LDL. This result, along with your triglyceride level, may be the most accurate predictor of cardiac "events."

You may also decide, regardless of those results, that you'd rather not risk the side-effects of statins and instead go the diet, exercise and supplement route.

I've provided some links that might aid you in making that decision.

Good luck and I hope that helps!

You will not drop down dead. The actual risk reductions in cardiovascular events for statins is quite miniscule, the difference in all-cause mortailty in most trials between statin and placebo was no different - so all you are doing is changing the name on a death certificate. Furthermore, the tiny reduction in cardiovascular deaths with statins is less to do with any cholesterol reduction per se, but their effects on certain aspects of inflammation. That being the case you are far better off taking a good quality fish oil, cutting back on omega 6 oils, and avoiding trans fatty acids and sugar.
