Thanks to those dramatic commercials from malpractice lawyers, patients across the country have been coming in to clinic wondering whether their statin is the reason they have been a bit forgetful, were diagnosed with diabetes, or have had leg pain.

It includes the questions you should ask and then provides an interpretation of the likelihood of actual statin intolerance as well as follow up suggestions. It’s a great example of how a timely app can quickly address common clinical issues.
