Abstract:
Background: Case reports have related the use of HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors (‘statins’) to Parkinson’s disease (PD). Paradoxically, however, statins may have potentially beneficial effects on neurodegenerative diseases due to their anti-inflammatory properties. Objective: To explore the risk of the development of PD in association with untreated hyperlipidaemia and with hyperlipidaemia treated with lipid-lowering drugs in the UK primary care...

Reference: The risk of severe depression, psychosis or panic attacks with prophylactic antimalarials
No direct link.

Abstract:
Introduction/Objective: Experimental and observational studies have linked mefloquine use to an increased risk of developing neuropsychiatric adverse effects such as depression or psychoses. Most of these reports relied on interview-based information from travellers. We conducted a population-based observational study using a database of medical records to quantify and compare the risk of psychiatric disorders during or after use of mefloquine with the...

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.

Abstract:
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 Prac...
