Hi babydog...don't know if this will help but here's my story...I am 53 going through meno and for 2 years have had terrible hot flashes...long story, short, I was put on BP meds & zocor after a dr. visit...LDL was 169 (this was a direct reading so have no idea about my cholesterol or HDL reading). At that time decided to stop my prempro & after 3 months I stop BP meds. I'm still on zocor and last week started my prempro again as night sweats are completely out of control. I will be having my Lipid profile in 3 weeks so feel pretty confident that my readings will be fine. This all being said I was on prempro for 8 months prior to my dr. visit so no it didn't help my LDL so in my opinion I believe statins are better than HRT but believe for hot flashes & night sweats nothing beats HRT.

Hi Goldenboys,
I recall your post about pain in you elbow joint and whether it could be related to the Zocor. Did this pain go away and are you doing OK with the Zocor otherwise?
