      I first became aware of VYTORIN, which is a medication prescribed for people with elevated cholesterol, when I saw it advertised on television when it first came on the market. Then I also began to see VYTORIN advertised in some of the magazines I subscribe to.

      I had never taken any other medications for high cholesterol such as LIPITOR or


      CRESTOR, and going on a low cholesterol diet didn’t help very much.

      Since my cholesterol was about 235-240, which was too high, my doctor and I discussed having me use a medication to help lower my cholesterol.

      I mentioned the VYTORIN to him and we decided I would try that medication first.

      He started me on 10 mg and then ...


      • I had my cholesterol checked again in 60 days.

        What a surprise! Not only was my cholesterol way down to 165, but my triglycerides and HDL levels were also completely normal! This was about a year and a half ago and at my annual exam this year, everything was still very normal.

        I have had no adverse side effects

        from taking VYTORIN (which contains a combination of CRESTOR and ZETIA).

        Other people may not have the good results that I’ve had, but I feel this medicine is one of the best and most effective statins on the market at this time.

        I still watch my diet carefully and try to exercise regularly, which everyone should do when taking any medication for high cholesterol.
