No. It was "suggested" by the clinical pharmacist at my surgery that I should consider taking them. I don't like taking any medication that is not absolutely necessary.
I don't model anything in particular, I just play trains.
Why can't people spell "gauge" correctly?

I used to take them but after reading so much bad press I told the GP I wasnt going to anymore. I'm still here!

I was borderline and was given the choice of whether or not I wanted to take them. I decided against doing so - for the time being anyway. R-

Been on them for about 7 years - 40mg dose. Never had any side effects and all 6-monthly check-up results show normal or better levels of cholesterol etc.
