Hi.. Drugs are just supportive measures to reduce cholesterols. But the primary treatment is a strict dietary regimen and good physical exercises.. Diet and exercise is much more essential than drugs alone.. So better get to diet modifications and physical exercise first.. Medical drugs can be taken too to provide a quality cholesterol control.... All the best...
