You need to take as many meds as it takes to aggressively control cholesterol and BP. Hopefully you have a good liver
. If you can keep total cholesterol well below 150, raise your HDL, get your weight down, and keep physically active, you can manage even severe end stage disease like I have.
The meds are not rocket science. The most effective statins are Lipitor, Crestor, and to a lesser extent Zocor. You should be on one if you can tolerate it.
