I am only 32 and I feel like i am too young to have to start a regimen of pill taking for the rest of my life. Sort of depresses me, but......I don't want to have a heart attack or stroke and leave my kids without a mother.

I don't remember what my numbers are other than that my doctor told me that my cholesterol is 280 and triglycerides are higher than high. It's a LONG family history of this, so I wasn't surprised. Thing is....he put me on Vytorin and now I am just absolutely EXHAUSTED all the time. I am never feeling like I got a good night's sleep.

Does anyone else ever have this problem with theirs?

Have U asked your dr. to try U on something else? Not all meds. work the same for folks, so could be the Vytorin just isn't for U. Hope they can find something else that doesn't make U so exhausted, not a good way to be.

Best wishes.... :wave:
