I had a Doppler for my carotid artery which showed 50 percent build up on the left side. now my doctor wants me to take lipitor, and I am terrified of side effects. I am 69 years old female I don't take medications my cholesterol has been monitored and it is normal.
I exercised all my life eat well my weight never changed 130 pounds 5 /2 tall.
I am small built everything effects me faster than normal people. I can get high on a cough syrup…..
I am trying to find an alternative medicine to statins. I take vitamins and supplements all my life Can any one have a suggestion ?
