Used together with proper diet to treat high cholesterol levels in the blood. This medicine may also be used to prevent certain types of heart problems.

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)?

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

When was Lipitor recalled? Why? I took it for a few years and just recently switched to Crestor.

Can help to lower cholesterol to help your heart.


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