k one more question
i have cholesterol problem for past 4 months and was on medication as advised taking X-Tor F daily at night
a doctor asked me to stop this during my kdney stone problem and repeat the cholestrol check after 3 months
so i started to take again XtoR-F after this lipid profile
is that fine ?
Please continue to takse Xtor F
It is very important
but should this be taken life-time ?
The benefit from the drug outweighs the risk in you
Yes, it is a lifetime drug
k is there any side effect of this XtoR-F ?
also if i take XTOR-F is there any medicine i should avoid ?
Side effects are minimal
Acute renal failure ?
i already had kidney stone
is it due to this drug ?
which i continued for 3 years ?
XtorF does not cause kidney stone
It very rarely causes acute renal failure
As I said earlier, the benefit from the drug is more for you compared to the risks and side effects
k but it is safe to take this with other prescribed durgs like coldarin or antibiotocs prescribed by doctors ?
Yes, it is safe
