Many drugs besides lipid-lowering drugs affect serum lipid levels in either a potentially harmful or beneficial way, and may therefore increase or decrease the risk of cardiovascular disease. Diuretics, beta-blocking agents, progestogens, combined oral contraceptives containing 'second generation' progestogens, danazol, immunosuppressive agents, protease inhibitors and enzyme-inducing anticonvulsants adversely affect the lipid profile. They increase total cholesterol, low density lipoprotein… CONTINUE READING
