AZBlonde,

I also posted a reply to you under Lipitor Bad Side Effects.

I'm repeating some of it here...

Stay on the Lopid - you need it to get your triglycerides down...

You should also (if you're not already) try the following dietary recommendations to get your trigs down...

Reduce your intake of sugars and processed carbs.
Reduce your intake of starchy foods (white breads, potatoes, white rice)
Avoid trans-fats (anything with 'hydrogenated' on the label)
Eat more green, leafy veggies and fruits (not too heavy on the fruits though)
Eat more whole grain products (oats, whole wheat)...
Easy on the saturated fats
Use Virgin Olive Oil instead of corn or coconut oil
Eat more salmon, swordfish, tuna - also supplement with Omega-3 Fish Oil tablets (ones that are high in EPA and DHA - I get mine at Puritan)...
Have no more than 1 alcholic drink (preferably a glass of red wine) a day

Also, I think your doctor is recommending a cardiologist to get your numbers under control to avoid future problems - and for that a specialist is best...
