High Cholesterol Board Index

My husband's total cholesterol was 170 (down from 210) when he last had a physical (about a month ago). He's been on Welchol for about a year. The dr. changed the prescription to generic lipitor after he finishes up the last of the Welchol, with a blood work check after 3 months on the lipitor. He hasn't started it yet, but I'm questioning the need for it. We're watching our diets, he exercises faithfully, is in decent shape, with about 10 pounds to lose, and has normal blood pressure. He's 56 yrs. old and feels great. His father and uncles have/had heart disease, but ate a diet rich in lunch meat and sausages! I just hate for him to introduce something that might cause fatigue and joint pain. Don't have LDL/HDL/trigly #'s in front of me, or I'd post them. Anyway, would appreciate any comments on this.
