Discussions that mention pravachol

High Cholesterol board


I have a new cardiologist. He says heart diease can be reversed if a person can keep the LDL down below 78. I have heard this before but I am not sure I buy into it. My cholesterol was high because I have not be taking the Pravachol. I told him I had leg pain with Lipitor, Pravachol and Crestor. He asked me to try Vytorin 10/20, so I guess I’ll be a guinea pig and give it a shot. He also told me to increase the fish oil to 1000mg 6x a day. New blood tests in 5-6 weeks and I will post the results.
