Discussions that mention pravachol

Blood and Blood Vessel board

Thank you for the infoTom (I was born in CT...moved to VT 11 years ago) and Mimi. For now my Doc is trying one of the cholestrol-lowering drugs. Although my cholestrol levels are fine, my Hematologist said that the statins have been shown to lower the chances of blood clot formation. So far I had a bad reaction to one drug (Pravachol), but they're trying another. We'll see. It's certainly a better idea than taking coumadin, especially since I have a seizure disorder from a stroke. Thrashing around could cause a problem! :dizzy: Be well, Kathy
