Since I keep having adverse effects and not just nuisance side effects I will wait to see what my doctor recommends.
This list pulls up some of the conditions she didn’t like with the statins and niacin in its various forms has them too, one being difficulty breathing: http://www.umm.edu/altmed/articles/vitamin-b3-000335.htm Some of these can be reduced by taking aspirin before taking niacin BUT, I can’t take aspirin.
So you can see why experimenting on my own is dangerous. I already did that with the red rice yeast and when I report that I’ll not be making my doctor happy at all.
When will you be getting the next test done for your cholesterol reading? I hope it gives a better reading for you next time.
Have you read any more information about green tea? I don’t know how well that works. As it happens I bought some green tea recently in a box of tea bags and I haven’t tried them yet.
