Common Questions and Answers about Vytorin manufacturer

vytorin

Reading the many comments I came across one that stated lovastatin is an old medicine and is not used often. After recent cath my doctor changed my medication from vytorin ,have taken vytorin for 5 years, to lovastatin. I did ask for a cheaper medicine and lovastatin was what he came with. I have no problems or side effects . My question is lovastatin less effective then other of the same and if not why is it not used often. My engineering background comes out if I d not have proper data.
thing in regards to Vytorin started. Vytorin always was and still is a Statin drug that is only available via prescription. And my beef was that no doctor nor the company tells you what all the side effects are until you wind up in the E.R. (at least in my case) and even then nobody knows, I had to be the guinea pig and come up with a solution myself.
Muscle pain (mild to severe), muscle spasms (skeletal chest wall), light-headedness, dizziness, lack of concentration and focus, mood swings. My cardio finally got the message tha quality of life is important, too! I had a plaque blockage about 4 years ago - that's when I started with statins - then another in sam artery in July of this year.
I got these from a local pharmacy; they're from a different supplier/manufacturer. Big white pill instead of tan capsule. Anyway, it seems to be helping the eye pain, as I expected it would. I've also switched my T-replacement this week, from the brand-name gel you see on TV all the time to a 24-hour dermal patch that the insurance company will pay some of. Gel's a no-no now, unless I win the lottery (which I don;t play).
Also, if you cut empty carbs such as sugars, breads and pastas out of your diet it will help reduce your triglycerides as well. You really want your level below 150 if possible. I am on Tricor and Vytorin, which is just simvastatin and zetia. The Tricor has lowered mine from 333 to 145. I would like to think that my diet and exercise has helped as well!

Coumadin tabs (5mg).............$29.17......................$35.00......... So I wonder if the Insurance really pays that much??
To answer your question, the most common tx is a weekly shot of pegalated Interferon (known by brand name Pegasys or PegIntron depending upon which manufacturer) and Ribavirin taken twice a day. The IFN kills the virus, the Riba is supposed to neuter/spay it and paint it so IFN is more effective. These two meds can result in reduced blood counts (IFN reduces WBC and ANC, Riba reduces RBC and Hgb) which sometimes requires additional tx of Neupogen (for WBC/ANC) and/or Procrit (for RBC/Hgb).
