Are there potential side effects to long term medication like for cholesterol and high blood?

Responded a day or two ago, but not sure where my post went. Side effects differ from one medication to another, you can find the common side effects online but it would be best to consult your doctor for a more comprehensive list of side effects.

Usually they are very mild and will outweigh the risks which would be there if you dont take the medication

Another spammer from India and/or PK. I deleted several yesterday that you had responded to. Check the joined date and number of posts and you can almost guess if you read the text as it's usually something than anybody who was already here would know doesn't exist. Normally if the request/question or information being given look odd/strange or extremely familiar is probably a spammer that we have caught on our sweeping rounds. Because you did all the work (for a nobody who could care less except getting post counts where he can come back later and add a hyperlink in his signature box and populate all & any posts that have survived) I'm leaving the thread as you have provided, in good faith, some useful information for our readers. But the OP has been blocked so don't ask him/her any questions as they cannot reply. Did anybody notice the flurry of praise posts in the Indian School GIIS thread last week. Over 50 I personally deleted. All from the same address in Delhi. Don't know about the other Mods.
