So does aspirin and it's cheaper and you need to waste time and money going to the doctor and getting an overpriced prescription that you'll have to go back to him time and again to have refilled.

I have used http://qgeneric.info/#izft 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.

All you have to do is eat correctly unless you have a genetic predisposition to hypercholesterolemia. It usually goes hand in hand with hypertriglyceridemia, but the statins do not have an effect on the triglycerides. Again, diet and exercise go a long way toward lowering the numbers.

With the age of the posters here, this information should be relevant.

Two of the posters here take statins and then eat cuban and flan.

Prescription drugs can help reduce high triglycerides, but I wouldn't recommend them. There are side effects to these drugs. Blood testing is typically given every 6 months or so to detect possible liver damage, but theses drugs can contribute to Diabetes, vision and other conditions. Be cautious and pay attention to any symptoms you think you may be experiencing while taking any prescription drugs for high cholesterol-high triglycerides. You can try Cholest-Off which is an OTC drug or other non prescription alternatives at health food stores, etc. While not as strong, and make take longer for the same effect, but still worth a try. The most important thing in trying to reduce high-triglycerides is reducing your weight and exercise. Combine that with healthy eating and plenty of water and you should eventually see some good results!
