The PILL pilot trial (4)

For two weeks now, I’ve been taking a “polypill” each day as part of a pilot trial for the treatment of people at raised risk of cardiovascular disease such as as heart attack or stroke. So this morning, I made my third visit to the International Centre for Circulatory Health at St Mary’s Hospital at Paddington in London.
For the third time, I had my blood pressure taken three times and, for the second time, I had a blood sample taken and I was weighed. So far, I have not felt different at all. This either means that I am not experiencing any side effects from the “polypill” or that i am not taking the pill at all but a placebo. I won’t know till the end of the 12-week pilot trial.
