Thank God for cheap HCTZ!
Just to let you know that I just had my blood work done and my cholesterol was high at 252.
The doc put me on NIACIN, that you can buy at Walmart CHEAP off the shelf.
In 1 week my cholesterol dropped to 195!
He told me it works pretty good.
If you get it though get the "no flush" or "sustained release" . Work yourself up to 500Mg in 1 week then give yourself 500 Mg. every other day. That is what he told me at least.
I have appointment in 2 months so we will see then how it does.
