... Nick, Congratulations!!! Your numbers are great! Stay on the Crestor, but do be observant about any side-effects (muscle pain, tingling sensations...). If you run into any persistent, unexplained side-effects, I'd consider stopping for a while to see if they go away. You should also adopt a healthy diet (if you're not already on one)...

... Why won't they put you on Crestor? If they won't, find a Dr who will! It's certanly worth a try, given your problems with Lipitor. Since Crestor is more effective per dose than Lipitor, you can try 5mg (1/2 pill) to start and go from there if required. The fact you still have other meds left over should not enter into your decision. You should take 100mg of Q10 daily with any... (14 replies)
