    Retiree in good health generally.

  • I had a moderate Cholesterol. This medication brought it down to normal levels. I am using it as a short cut to avoid worrying about what I eat. I am not a foodie, don't eat fast foods, so I had very limited choice for diet control.
    High cholesterol

    Used for two years or more

    Healthy, physically active

  • Works very fast and lowers bad cholesterol fast. Only downside would be increased arthritic pain in muscles and joints around previous injury. When off of it arthritic pain goes away. But great to lower cholesterol.
