is anyone using these and having any side effects ? Repatha or Praudulent? And my question is why with drastic lower numbers why is it only a 20 percent chance to stop heart attacks ?

Welcome to the site MSA508! Must admit I am not taking either of the drugs that you mentioned, but I am sure someone on here might have some thoughts on your question. Just wanted to say "Hi". Hope all is well with you.
Thanks for joining us.

I am not taking any of these drugs either but I think when it comes to heart disease, there aren't any sure fire preventatives. The drugs supplement all other life style changes which should include a healthy diet and exercise. There are no guarantees but doing these things should greatly reduce your risk. The statin drugs I'm on reduced my cholesterol by 100 points. I don't think this prevents me from having a heart attack but it helps to reduce the risk which is the goal.
