Discussions that mention lovastatin

High Cholesterol board


I was a little confused when I just read that taking lovastatin at does higher than 20 mg. per day should not be used in conjunction with gemfibrozil,niacin,cyclosporin or other fibrates. It stated that this is because of the significantly increased risk of rhabdomyolysis.
I seem to read posts here all the time about you guys/gals that are taking mass quantities of niaspan and other forms of niacin along with your statin.
Any comments?
