cholesterol, part II  

posted by Michael Piwonka 9:56 PM
Following up on my Feb 4 entry, my doctor prescribed Crestor today for my elevated cholesterol level.

Evidently Crestor is a relatively new alternative to drugs like Lipitor. The side effects of Crestor appear to be about the same, but the doctor told me the most likely side effect I might encounter would be muscle pain.

I have a follow-up appointment in 3 months to see how effective the drug has been.


random. arbitrary. completely unnecessary. yet refreshingly therapeutic.
