Brief Answer: There are few options. Detailed Answer: Hi, I have gone through your query. From your Lipid profile report, Triglyceride levels are high and rest are boderline high. You have been given Statins like Storvas and Razel. You discontinued them because you had serious side effects. But Statins are treatment of choice to lower the cholesterol. I assume that you are aware of life style modifications like: Eat low fat diet. Regular exercise. Maintain Weight. Other options include Medicines like Ezetimibe, Fibrate, Niacin, Bile acid resins like colestipol. Of these Ezetimibe might help you out. Ezetimibe is usually given along with Statins but it can be given alone if statins are not well tolerated. It has its own side effects but mild one like diarrhea and headaches. As this is a prescription medicine and may require normal Liver Function test, I suggest you to consult a local cardiologist. Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help.

Brief Answer: Razel is first choice in your case. Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for the follow up. Razel(Rosuvastatin) is first choice for high cholesterol and to prevent cardiovascular disease. That is why cardiologists prescribe you this medicine, as other medicines don't prevent progression of cardiovasular disease. If you have muscle pain and weakness, lack of energy, chest pain, you discontinue it and consult your cardiologist. Tell him about your adverse effect and option for starting Ezetimibe. It is a prescription drug and can only be started by your doctor. In the meantime, Tab Health OK with Alpha Lipoic acid can be used. These are multivitamins with antioxidants and help you over come lazyness and pain. If you do not have any clarifications, you can close the discussion and rate the answer. Wish you good health.
