  • Effectiveness
    Major (for High Cholesterol)
  • side effects
    None
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 20 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: My HDL (the good stuff) has always been high, but as I've gotten older, combined with fibro, I've been doing less exercise, so my LDL (the bad stuff) was creeping up.  This med brought it down into the good range.
