    For me personally years ago I chose to stop my statin med due to
    problemsome side effects. I did not stop the medication though
    without first consulting with my doctor.

    How to counteract the side effects? A healthier lifestyle maybe to
    deal with the cholestrol issues otherwise.

    Are you presently on a statin med? Which one if you'd like to share.

    Are you experiencing any specific side effects you would like to chat
    about?

    Re: how to counteract side effects of statins

    If you have not already done so, try improving the lifestyle habits that affect blood cholesterol (e.g. avoid consuming bad fats (trans-fats and saturated fats) and bad carbohydrates (sugars and fast digesting carbohydrates), increasing exercise, and losing excess body fat). If you are successful at that, the improvement in blood cholesterol from these actions may be enough to allow reducing or even eliminating the need for drugs (consult with your doctor on the appropriate adjustments to the drugs; of course, you will have to maintain the improved lifestyle habits for life).
