... I want to make clear that I believe all those that offer their stories of misery or at least great discomfort associated with their use of statins. I don't think these are downplayed here as this is the kind of place people come to that are experiencing troubles. ... (11 replies)

... i didn't mean its downplayed here..i meant by the dr's until something really bad happens. with my hubby and friends mom that isn't pain...it could lead to death. its why one of the other statins were banned...i bet lipitor will be next. ... (11 replies)
... is too high. Lipitor is relatively powerful and has a good track record of few side effects... That's the one I'd recommend... I'd also recommend diet and lifestyle changes. ... (3 replies)

... Mmmm, I thought that Pravachol was the weakest? ... (10 replies)
... As long as U can take the statins with no side effects, that is good. I, like many others had horrid reactions to them, so am trying like crazy to lower the numbers with diet, exercise and some supplements. I don't expect to try everything I hear about, that is not my style, plus I don't have money to blow. ... (86 replies)
