Re: HDL raisers
Aug 22, 2007
You CAN take a statin along with Tricor, I do. Both my cardiologist and my family doctor reccommended it, you just need to watch for symptoms of muscle pain and have your blood checked every 90 days to keep an eye on your liver function. I went on this program because my LDL responds great to Zocor but my HDL stays a little low and my Tri's are high. My numbers are TC 163, LDL 58, HDL 38 and Tri's 333. That's why they put me on Tricor along with the Zocor for a short time to get my HDL up and my Tri's down. I exercise every day, 45 minutes and 500 calories on a treadmill but just can't seem to get all my numbers right, even by cutting out the sweets and empty carbs. I hope I get a 10-20% increase in HDL!

Good Luck.
