Re: Fish Oil?

Hi Neal, Well always good to check with your dr before adding herbs/suppliments to your meds. But I work with a man who is on a statin drug (don't think its' lipitor, but could be) and he also takes fish oil daily. He still had high triglycerides while on the statin, but became lowered substantially after he atarted on the fish oil.

Re: Fish Oil?

Neal,

Oh SURE you can. Just dealing with the cholesterol question, To my Lipitor I've added high doses of Folic Acid, Cod-Liver oil, lecithin, Canola oil, low-dose niacin, and alcohol...
all with increasing improvement in my Cholesterol numbers.

The two things that improve BP though are weight loss and NO alcohol.

As you can see the alcohol is a double edged sword!
