This answer was rated:

I have mild high blood pressure and have been prescribed statins bisoprolol fume rate and amyloid pine is it necessary to take these for the rest of my days ...?

Thanks for this question

I'm Dr Phil, licensed and practicing MD with over 10 years experience

I don't really see a benefit of the statin at your age. No study has proven that those people over 75 benefit from a statin

I would ask to go off.

The bisoprolol can cause fatigue.

Ask for that to be changed to a med that doesn't or ask for an increase in amlodipine
