Pravachol Reviews

Overall: tinman, Glad you like the CAD article. Dr. Walton-Shirley and I got off onthe wrong foot several years ago so I was happy to see this opinion article. As far as stains have you looked at Livalo (pitivastatin)? HH

Overall: I have tried them all but pravachol is the only one I tolerate up to 40 mg. Everyone's system is different.

Pros: Can help to lower cholesterol to help your heart.

Cons: Didn't work with initial dose. Doctor had to move me to the 40mg dose for it to work.
