Hi I was wondering about pravastatin...
My cholesterol this past Wednesday was at 180..
I also take amlodipine and lisinopril as well as an aspirin.
I am type 2 diabetic...on insulin and pretty controlled.
I have switched to a vegetarian ( mostly) diet and really am trying to eliminate flour and sugar...flour is the main culprit for me!
I would love to stop my pravastatin...I go to my dr. Every six months for review ..what are your thoughts please?
