Please let me know if you can stop Pravastatin. I dislike being on a statin drug. I was on 20 mg. of liptor for 5 years and then got muscle pain. According to the doctor Pravastatin is less severe to the muscles. I have changed my diet and hope I can lower my cholesterol without taking a statin drug. Please send me any info about this particular statin drug. My history is a stroke 5 years ago and a mild heart attack. I feel good and have had almost a total recovery.
Thank you - I look forward to any responses.....Maria
