  • I used to be on Lipitor, but when we moved and I had to switch to a new PCP she redid my cholestorol count, which was close to 300, and had me do diet and exercise for 3 months before she checked it again. I had my levels checked again and it went down 50 points. She told me to add Fish Oil to my daily regime. I bought them, took one whiff, and refuse to even try to swallow those nasty things - no thank you. I'll stick with the diet and exercise.
