High Cholesterol Board Index


I've been battling high cholesterol for a couple years now. Started out at 358 and triglycerides over 1000. Started on 10 mg Lipitor, then 20, 40, then 80 mg. Each change helped a little, but not much, then the doctor switched me to niacin, which helped a little too, but was still too high. Last fall, added 80 mg Lipitor back in along with 2000 mg niacin/day. Cholesterol dropped from 318 to 116 in 6 weeks! I was leary about the high dosage of Lipitor, so we cut the pills in half, so I take 40 mg (80's and 40's were the same price!). I'll get tested again later to see if it's still good...if it is, may cut Lipitor back more to see if a lower dose along with Niacin continues to help.
