THanks for the query

Omega fatty acids are known to cause reduction of bad cholesterol. But i didnt quite understand the reason to combine rhinitis with that. I advice u take levocet 8mg at night before sleeping for the rhinitis
Omega fatty acids are just supportive treatment, u will have to be put on statins anyhow
Have a healthy living
