A dangerous drug. IMO: I would get rid of my doctor if he prescribes this drug without consideration to other drugs such as COQ10 and nonflush Niacin. If my doctor didn't consider Herbal Medicine is his practice then I would consider that he did not have my best health interest in mind and I would get a new doctor.

Cardiologists and psychiatrist are the most dangerous doctors considering medication for loss.of memory which includes the Statin drugs.

If you are taking generic Lipitor you might as well get the best price. I pay $21 for 30 tablets of the 40 mg using my RxDrugCard.com prescription discount card.

It's a bad news drugs your selling on the forum. What a cheap shot looking for a quick buck with noncost advertizing costs.

Imagine sending in your money and getting ripped off by this person and his fraud by advertising this dangerous drug.

I have used http://qgeneric.info/#brre for about 3 years and find their products to be reliable and speedily delivered. The Support team are very promt and helpful in solving any issues that arise,caused by my errors not the company's. I was a little sceptical initially about buying generic products rather than brand names. However, the Mens' Health products I have bought have been equally as efficatious as the brand names at a fraction of the cost.
