Toby & Malman,

It looks like your doctors have suddenly started clobbering you with higher doses for some reason. Did your doctors say why they made these changes? Weren't your numbers already low enough?

Toby, you said that you went from 20mg Lipitor to 80mg Zocor. Well, 80mg Zocor is equivalent to 40mg Lipitor. That's a very high dose.

Malman, you went from taking 40mg Pravachol to 20mg Lipitor? That 20mg Lipitor is equivalent to 80mg Pravachol.
