Had a triple bypass done. Prior to that I have been on cholesterol tabs on and off for quiet a number of years. My doctor and cardiologist popped me back on a larger dose of cholesterol lowering dosage.
My life has been affected a lot from those medications, from memory loss to not being able to concentrate very well. Leg weakness and generally just feeling like crap and slow on my feet like an old man. I don't want to live being affected like that.
Then, on the other hand, I don't want to have another bypass done. I read lots of stuff that condemns cholesterol lowering drugs and claiming that cholesterol does not cause blockage to the arteries. Well? How I wonder my arteries got blocked. It has got me confused now.
I am upping my Omega 3 intake and the use of other more natural means to try and keep me healthier. What is right and what is wrong I don't know. Both sides claim to be correct. One pushing the medications and the other against the use of it.
I stopped using Vytorin and I have been on all the other ones too. They all have me feeling sick.
