A new study has found evidence that suggests use of statins, commonly used in the regulation of cholesterol levels, may be associated with a reduction in cognitive decline in the elderly. Researchers in the Cardiovascular Health Study Collaborative Research Group monitored the cognitive abilities of 3,334 people over the age of 65 without dementia for an average of seven years and found that regular statin use was associated with a rate of cognitive decline less than half of that of untreated patients.
A paper by Dr. Charles Sullivan, presented by the author at the 2003 New England Forensic Sciences Conference at Colby College: It is common practice in Medicine to put patients on combinations of drugs. The vast majority of these combinations of drugs (especially where 3 or more drugs are involved) have never been studied at all, let alone in double-blind trials ( with the exception of Oncology/AIDS treatment, where the toxicity of the drugs demands study); yet it is frequent practice to prescribe these multiple-drug combinations.
