    High Cholesterol pain

    Hi, I'm a first time poster. Have had high Cholesterol for years now and constant medication. Recently, my meds (Crestor) went from $18 to $100, so I started taking it every other day with fish oil on the days off to stretch my money. Probably not a good idea, but I don't really have any symptoms of pain or anything else. What kind of pain are you experiencing?

    I am not sure what you are getting at. You indicate that you don't have any pain, but ask about pain?

    As to the price talk talk to your doctor. He might want you to cut the pills in half. Or use a higher dosage that is cut in half.

    Or prescribe a different stain that is much cheaper.
