Hi VelmaTulip - Thanks, I am very aware of that, it is not a concern for me since - as a senior - I don't take any medications.

I did try Statins - several different ones and different strengths - and had many side effect, so I refuse to take them..

Again - I'm curious - has anyone taken an OTC product instead of a Statin that says it can help reduce Cholesterol Levels.

Yes, VelmaTulip makes a good point.

I haven't, but please always check with the pharmacist if you're on any prescription drugs to make sure they don't interact in a negative way. They would rather you be safe than sorry. After my grandmother died, we found out that some of the OTC meds/vitamins she was taking reacted negatively to 3 different prescriptions she was on.
