I need help!
Jan 11, 2007
I posted on this board a couple weeks ago about my concerns about taking statins and now I have a problem and would appreciate any input or help you could give me. I will explain.

My cholesterol readings are as follows:
Cholesterol Total: 242 (normal 0-99)
triglycerides: 164 ( normal max. 149)
HDL: 58 (normal 40-59)
VLDL: 33 (normal 5-40)
LDL: 151 (max 99)

Well as you can see the LDL is out of sight and my total and trig. and I was all set to take Lipitor, but my insurance won't pay for it and will only pay for Vytorin or Crestor. I scared because both these drugs raise good cholesterol and I heard that can cause a stroke or heart attack. Im at my wits end about this cholesterol stuff and I don't know what to do. Which would be the best Vytorin or Crestor or does it really matter? Thanks a bunch to those that will help me. Thanks..barb
