Cholesterol medication

Posted by jackiekos @jackiekos, Jun 23, 2018

I have coronary artery disease. I have a 20, 30 & 60% blockage. Simvastatin is not lowering my cholesterol enough so I was put on Crestor. I had numerous side effects and my cardiologist told me to stop for 2 weeks. The side effects went away, now what? I take other medications for hypothyroidism, depression, and a beta blocker.

Hello @jackiekos,

Welcome to Connect. We have some great conversations about statins, including Simvastatin which I'd encourage you to read; feel free to join in and ask questions wherever you feel comfortable:
– High Calcium Score
– High Calcium Score and PCSK9
– Complications with Statins

I'd like to invite @mcphee @lolly906 @degarden_girl @falconfly @dinohula @botexas @thankful @jackj @kevinking @lioness @ca426 @rabbit10 @ssandy to this discussion as they've mentioned taking Simvastatin, Crestor and/or other statins.

@llecrup @donnac1969 @vicks @jchp @marnie10 have discussed coronary artery disease in this conversation, and I'm certain they will have more insights to share with you.

@jackiekos, what treatment plan has your cardiologist suggested?
