That doesn’t really sound like a very good idea, to he honest. Statins are generally safe but can sometimes cause severe and even fatal side effects. There is also a possibility of interactions with other drugs that a person is taking, I would think and you would have no one monitoring people for that kind of thing, for serious side effect and bad reactions.

Safety of Statins

Statins are not the answer. Not everyone reacts well to these meds & they have been shown to cause a wide variety of side-effects, including pneumonia in some people.

Statins can cause liver problems. If you are prescribed Lipitor, your liver function is tested before you begin, and then again after about a month.
