Results Simvastatin (40mg) and Tricor (48mg)

My latest results are:
TC: 199
HD: 37
LD: 99
Tri: 317

My previous results about 6 weeks ago with Vytorin (10/40mg):
TC: 179
HD: 38
LD: 68
Tri: 365

My Triglycerides went down about 15%, However my Total Cholesterol went up 10% and my LDL went up about 31%. I'm not sure how I feel about that. My doctor now wants me to go up to 145mg on the Tricor. Am I happy about that? no.

This month I added 1000mg per day fish oil suppliments and 100mg per day of Co-enzyme Q10 suppliments as I was feeling some aches and pains, possible statin side effects.

I did really well in the beginning of the month with my diet but my hours at work changed so I am getting up 2 hours earlier which somewhat effected my diet.

I haven't exercised too much but went for a nice walk tonight, have a ton of yard work starting tomorrow, so I'm hoping to kick the exercise up. I only gained 1 pound since my last cholesterol test.

That's the latest update. My doctor wants me to get my next cholesterol test in 3 months but I may opt to have one in 6 weeks.
