Thanks for the input and sharing, - its appreciated..

.I did my research and only used high quality products from reputable companies. as well as well known Nutritional Shops in my area...... - at one time there was something called - if I remember correctly "guggul" (Sp) but believe that can no longer be included in Red Yeast Rice at least in the US. ...

If I remember right, when red rice yeast was a big thing there was a lot of discussion about there being brands on the market that really weren't the real thing or that were mostly fillers and actually had very little of the red rice yeast in them. Maybe you got one of those and that's why it didn't work. You might research brands before you buy again.

Interesting that a doctor recommended it - I find that unique - they are usually so quick to give aa RX -

I tried it several years ago, didn't lower my numbers. Want to try it again - but pretty skeptical with so many brands and claims....

I have taken Red Rice Yeast now for six years on my doctor's recommendation. My cholesterol level dropped so that I didn't need other medication. Of course, I watched my fat consumption and exercised, so maybe the red rice yeast didn't cause the drop. Since I have no side effects like leg cramps, I will continue to take the yeast.

My name is Nadine and I live in Winter Haven, Fl

Atorvastatin is the generic Lipitor. It's suppose to be the one with the least side effects but that doesn't mean people don't get any. If you aren't getting side effects I wouldn't worry about it. Just maybe know the possible side effects and if you start getting any of them tell your doctor.

I'm a little afraid to go with Red Yeast Rice. It has lovastatin in it and I'm trying to stay away from the statins to keep my leg cramps to a minimum.

I've taken Cholestoff on and off for several years. it is recommended by Dr. Janet Brill in her book Cholesterol Down - which is excellent BTW - she has a recipe for Steel Cut Oatmeal in this book that I have made many times, it is excellent...

The Cholestoff did not help me, probably need to take it with Red Yeast Rice - which I have also taken on and off over the years.

I am going to get the Cholestene from ViaCost...and see if that works for me.

Now the FDA is saying it's all genetic. What we eat doesn't hurt although it might help, like omega 3s. Have you tried plant sterol pills? I bought some ChlestOff by Nature Made but haven't started taking them yet.

Yep - those leg cramps can be quite annoying. I have tried just about all the Statins out there - name brands as well as generic, including Niaspan and the OTC Slo-Niacin - & I gave up on them - absolutely refuse to take them - and fortunately I don't need any other medications...

I work very hard on getting my cholesterol numbers down naturally and with some over the counter products. Planning on trying a new one that I saw on VitaCost - reviews say that it has helped those who have used it, getting their numbers down. Don't know if it will work for me, but I am going to give it at shot - my situation with cholesterol is genetic which is difficult to reduce..

I was on Zocor for many years, at first with niacin until that started bothering my liver too much, then a new doctor switched me to Lipitor and I stayed on it for a few years. Then I started getting really horrible leg cramps and he switched me to pravastatin, which almost immediately brought on leg pain. He grudgingly allowed me to stop all medicine, promising to try something other than statins if the leg cramps went away (proving they were caused by the statins) but when I went back he was getting ready to move to Africa and had forgotten why he wanted to see me so I let it go. I found a new doctor only to find that he was moving across town. So now I need to find a doctor and get it all straightened out.
