Default Welchol

I have had a real battle with my cholestrol. I have tried the different common medications on the market but had terrible side effects as described in the other comments. I was put on Welchol and just taking the 6 pills a day was hard enough but I also had pain, unable to sleep, so I quit taking it also.<br>I am one of those people that can't tolerate these medications. <br><br>I am looking for a natural alternative for I have other health issues and heart problems does run in my family. I read where fish oil or niacin could help. How about Garlic?<br><br>It sounds like a lot of people are not able to take Welchol along with the other popular medications that are out there.

Default Red yeast Rice

Lem,<br><br>I have a friend who lowerd her cholestrol 40 points by taking Red yeast rice, find this at a health store, she also raised her HDH and lowered her LDL. She has had no side effects from this, I am now taking it, as all the Chol. meds have ( and I have taken all of them) left me with such pain in my joints and mus. that I am now going to a pain center for relief.
