    My Doctor Advised Me To Stay Away From Vascepadodo

    TRUE STORY: Caremark called my doctor to change my prescription from LIPITOR(when it was introduced in 1997) to Provochol. When I learnt this--I called my doctor--He said-Caremark called him to change prescription to cheaper medicine. I finally put my foot down with Caremark--and they reversed the prescription to LIPITOR.
    I had read a Wall Street Journal article about Lipitor--So I wanted to switch from ZOCOR to LIPITOR--which was doing little to my my cholestrols and trigylcerides.
    Lipitor did a good job--except Triglcerides. My doctor asked me to take NIACIN--but that did not suit me. I still have one big bottle of Niacin from Sam's Club.

      How is your LDL and TG now ?
      Have you had a lipid panel run lately ?

      I could never adjust to Niacin ---had the worst over dose reaction once --lasted a day and a half ---Doc said Hmmm Think we will take you of that .
