The thing about the internet is there is so much "information" out there. It can be bewildering. There are pro and cons on any subject one can think of.

I felt early on there was a book, dvd, etc, or something coming up for sale.

I take lipitor and am somewhat confused about it and the tewo other medications I am taking.

I do know this. I hate the easy bleeding and bruising.

Who to trust, drug manufacturers or the people who sell books,dvd's, etc.?

Put more trust in someone who doesn't have financial gain in the transaction.

Re: You Take Lipitor Or Other Cholesterol Lowering Drug? Read.....


Heart attack 2 years ago...
Felt some "sensations" in my arms...
Took a Bayer powdered aspirin product...sensation went away. Happened 2 more times that night and next morning...same results.
Two stents put in...
Was complaining about some chest muscle discomfort (muscles aches can be a by-product of statins). Doc told me to quit Crestor until my next stress test (6 weeks away)
Had some kidney stone problems right at the time I was scheduled for the stress test. Ended up not seeing the doc for 4 months. Cholesterol went back up pretty high...as high as it was when I had the attack. Started back on Crestor, muscle aches came back and cholesterol went drastically down.

While reading the article, I clicked on one of the highlighted texts about things that can lower your cholesterol. What opened was an ad for some pill. After seeing that, I kinda lost faith in the article.
I'm sure there are natural remedies to help with any and all ailments we have.

Very tough not to follow a heart doctor's orders to take these 4 pills everyday, including aspirin. "Yeah, thanks doc but no thanks" wasn't and isn't the first thought that comes to my mind.
If it was concerning staying off a sprained ankle for 2 weeks...different story.

I have been on crestor and lipitor. Both lowered cholesterol, both caused muscle pain and were expensive. I quit each one. Heart doctor got me to try pravistatin, been on it for about 1 1/2 years, with no known side effects. Costs about 10 bucks a month.
