Reference: Statin use and risk of gallstone disease followed by cholecystectomy
No direct link.

Context: Gallstone disease is a leading cause of morbidity in western countries and carries a high economic burden. Statins decrease hepatic cholesterol biosynthesis and may therefore lower the risk of cholesterol gallstones by reducing the cholesterol concentration in the bile. Data on this association in humans are scarce. Objective: To study the association between the use of statins, fibrates, or other lipid-lowering agents and...

No direct link.

Context: The relation between use of antidepressants, especially selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), and suicidal ideation and behaviors has received considerable public attention recently. The use of such drugs among teenagers has been of particular concern.

Abstract 61:

DID: 61
Authors: Schlienger RG, Kraenzlin ME, Jick S, Meier CR.
Title: JAMA 2004;292:1326-1332.
Reference: Use of beta-blockers and risk of fractures
No direct link.

Context Animal studies suggest that the -blocker propranolol increases bone formation, but data on whether use of -blockers (with or without concomitant use of thiazide diuretics) is associated with reduced fracture risk in humans are limited. Objective To determine whether use of -blockers alone or in combination with thiazides is associated with a decreased risk of fracture in adults. Design, Setting, and Participants Case-control analysis using the UK General Practice...
