My dad has been diagnosed with Angina and he has been taking Aspirin & Statins (plus a puffer thing when needed). He has convinced himself that his Angina is not serious and he is not willing to take Statins because of the suggested side effects in the news. My dad basically doesn't like taking tablets full stop! I am really worried that he is not taking the Statin's and I was wondering what I should do to encourage him to start again or atleast discuss it with his GP. Obviously he is a free-spirit, so it is up to him, but I feel I should let him know the risks so he is making an informed decision. He is 69 and hasn't had anything serious like a heart attack or stroke, but he has an Angina diagnosis for about 5 years.
How can I encourage him to reconsider his decision? Surely his GP wouldn't put him on Statin's without good reason!
