I've had high triglycerides - high cholesterol for many years. I've been on several prescription meds and have experiencing bad side effects with all of them. The most recent was Crestor, which produced abdominal cramping and blood in my mouth. I told the doctor and he couldn't believe nor had he heard of any patient having such side effects. Knowing what I had experienced, and my doctor's disbelief, was upsetting to me. He put me on Wellcor, but because of my previous scary experience with Crestor, decided not to take it. He was actually sympathetic with me this time and told me to try an over the counter med called "Cholestoff". He said that it has been shown to help reduce high triglycerides - along with a healthy diet and excercise. I generally eat healthy, although I could excercise more. I would appreciate it very much if anyone would tell me if they've tried "Cholestoff", and if they've had good results? Thank you so much!:)
