Common Drugs That Can Seriously Alter Your Mood And You May Not Realise They Are The Cause 

A case report submitted to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) by doctors and patients found that with the statin Lipitor (cholesterol-lowering medication), there had been 310 reports of aggression and violence and 62 reports of homicidal behaviour. There were 309 reports of irritability, 256 reports of personality change and 68 of paranoia.

With the statin Crestor, the database shows 133 reports of violence or aggression, five of homicidal behaviour, 93 of agitation and 84 of paranoia.

The U.S. database is, he says, much bigger and more useful ‘than anything that exists in the UK’.
