Growth in Use of Lipid-Lowering Therapies: Are We Targeting the Right Patients?

Within the context of concerns over growing prescription drug spending, the authors of this article look at the appropriateness of statin use in 1997 (pre-Direct-to-Consumer Advertising guidance) and in 1999 (post-DTCA guidance).
