I've been meaning to ask this for quite a while, and since my drug knowledge is scanty, bear with me. You know those "building story" Crestor (rosuvastatin...I actually remembered the name! lol) commercials on TV? They say plaque is dangerous, and Crestor helps slow the buildup of plaques. However, the commercial also features the message, "Crestor has not been shown to reduce heart disease or heart attacks." So WTH does the drug do? If it claims to reduce plaques, but DOES NOT reduce heart disease - the more relevant outcome, I think - why in the world would people take a drug that has no apparent benefit? Or am I missing something?
