Focusing only on cholesterol is side-stepping the real cause of cholesterol problems: improper diets and lifestyle. Here’s my take on this: if you aren’t open to a more natural lifestyle and to making the changes necessary for that happen such as clean eating, exercising, quit smoking, etc., and you have high cholesterol, then a statin could very well save your life. But, if you are willing to make some changes, you do have a choice. This article is very informative.

The most common conventional treatment for lowering cholesterol is one of the statin drugs: Lipitor (atorvastatin), Zocor (simvastatin), Pravachol (pravastatin), Crestor, (rosuvastatin calcium), and Lescol (fluvastatin). Another option is a class of drugs called bile acid sequestrants, one of the most common being Questran (cholestryramine).

While these drugs are effective at lowering cholesterol, both may lead to side effects that are far more serious than the condition for which they’re prescribed.

Side Effects of Statin Drugs

Statins lower cholesterol levels in two ways. First, they block the action of an enzyme that produces cholesterol, and second, they make your body excrete more cholesterol in the stool. The manufacturers of statin drugs list more than 130 possible side effects, including liver damage and muscle pain, tenderness, and weakness.
