... Yup, my last numbers in November were LDL 64, HDL 51, Total 147 and Triglycerides 157. The ones in July were similar...only the Niaspan, which was added last December, has worked to get the HDL above 35. Can't remember what my LDL was before I started the Niaspan (was pretty good, but I think it's even better now). I'm on a large Lipitor dose though (40 mg) and would like... (20 replies)

... Ken, I dispute there is convincing evidence showing the efficacy of Plavix over aspirin alone and evidence only for showing additional benefit for combining aspirin and Plavix (clopidogrel) for 2 months...and then no more.
