Cholesterol- and blood pressure-lowering drug use for secondary cardiovascular prevention in 2004 - 2013 Europe

Abstract: Background: Suboptimal use of cardiovascular prevention medications has been reported. We report recent trends in secondary cardiovascular disease (CVD) prevention drug use in Europe. Design: Study of Health and Retirement in Europe (SHARE), a large longitudinal 2004-2013 cohort study in middle-aged and elderly Europeans. Methods: Cross-sectional and panel logistic regression models were used to study trends in cholesterol- and blood pressure (BP)-lowering drug use and effects of individual characteristics among participants with CVD in SHARE. Results: 21,371 SHARE participants reported cardiovascular disease and, at initial report, 40% and 60% of them used cholesterol- or BP-lowering drugs, respectively. Increasing cross-sectional time trends were observed for both medication classes (odds ratios [OR] of use in 2013 vs 2004, 1.6 [95%CI 1.4-1.7] and 1.5 [1.4-1.6], respectively). However, among individuals with multiple observations, the use of both classes declined over time (2013 vs 2004 OR 0.63 [0.51-0.77] and 0.68 [0.55-0.84]; both trend p
