Hi
I recently started taking Crestor for high Triglycerides but it was not agreeing with me. I was depress and getting pains all over my body.. My doctor put me on Lipitor , after three days, started feeling depress and started having pains in my left foot. The pains are bearable but it is if I over did exercise and it hurts constant.. My dr told me to come off the Lipitor, so what should I take.?. My body seem to be producing the cholesterol, and the level of the choleserol is down to 179 but the Triglycerides are 259, hence the reason for the crestor and lipitor.. Can anyone suggest anything..

You could ask your doctor about a fenofibrate like Ticor, they are very effective on serum TGL's and have very few if any side effects.

Good luck!

Just in case,

Next time that you go for a blood test, be sure do not get any egg in the previous 48 hours.
The eggs rocket the tri. levels of my wife.
