Zetia question?
Aug 30, 2007
... her how her cholesterol levels are, and she said good, so I assumed that the LDL went down from 140, I knew Lipitor wouldn't raise her HDL, because she has been taking it for a few years and the HDL hasn't changed. ... (6 replies)
... My doctor prescribed me Zetia due to elevated ALT levels and other issues with Crestor 5 mg. I had tried Niaspan but the flushing was bad. I went to pick up the Zetia today and was talking to my pharmacist. ... (14 replies)
... My approach now, as I mentioned previously, is to use the SMALLEST dose of statin possible along with ZETIA. You will get the SAME LDL lowering with 10mg and ZETIA that you would with 80mg Lipitor alone. The fact that you can reduce your exposure to a statin is a BIG DEAL in my book. ... (33 replies)

Zetia
Jan 18, 2003
... I would like to know if anyone is having a good result with Zetia. My doctor has given me Zetia samples and a prescription to take in addition to Lopid. I have been taking Lopid which has reduced my triglycerides but my cholesterol is still high. ... (15 replies)
... and the doc once again suggested that I take a low dose of some statin. I talked him into giving me a script for Zetia because I knew that it is not processed through the liver. ... (4 replies)
... If you are adverse to statins, and are already taking niacin (Vitamin B3), why not consider increasing your niacin or if necessary going with the prescription brand of niacin (Niaspan)? Your low HDL is probably more likely to kill you than your slightly high LDL. The closer you can get that HDL to 60 the better off you will be. Personally, I think 73 is way too young to...

... I told you all about the Zetia, I started on that 8 weeks ago, along with all the other things I have been doing in this story. After 4 weeks of taking the Zetia I had a blood test done and it lowered my total cholesterol another 25 points down to 300, and lowered my ldl a significant amount. ... (33 replies)

... Man, those numbers are low, great HDL though. Is your dr. aware U are taking all these things together, as it almost looks like overkill. ... (6 replies)
... Actually, I checked prices on the web so I was fairly pleased with the price. I was glad to find it and it does seem to ease the flushing burden. Is it the same type as Niaspan? ... (14 replies)
... That is the same as my Doctor advised. He said I would have no issues with 2,000mg immediate release besides the flushing :mad:. I talked to him about this and he told me not to worry about any other side effects. What he did say however is to stay away from Slo-Niacin. When I began my Niacin therapy I asked him about Slo-Niacin and he said he would not allow me to take it.... (12 replies)
