  • 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.

  • I didn't expect the muscle and joint pain to quite as pervasive as it was. After taking this for about 6 months I was miserable. I was so apathetic that I didn't care if I lived or died.I wasn't sad or depressed, just felt "bleh".

  • 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.
