Hello and welcome to HCM
is a cholesterol
is used to lower LDL
It is an effective drug and side effects are minimal if taken at proper times.
It has to taken at bed time. It is lipid soluble and is excreted in bile.
If you wish to stop the drug I am afraid it will raise the levels of cholesterol and LDL and it will not be good be good for your health.
If you are concerned about the side effects then get the levels of transaminase and creatinine
kinase as this drug may raise the levels of these enzymes.
In case you want to stop the drug you need to visit your physician and get a substitute.
Thanks and take care
