Cholesterol meds

To take or not to take when your doctor insists you do? Not wanting to take them because of side effects. It's very frustrating! Do I do as my doctor says or not?

My doctor was very pushy about statins, but I didn't tell her no. I led her to believe I would take them, but got rid of the samples, did my research, went with a LCHF diet, and asked for another blood test 3 months after I had been following my plan very strictly. Big improvement in my numbers. I just wish I would've told her no!

But although she was a ***** to me and very crass, she scared the living day lights out of me and made me change my diet and as a result I'm much healthier. I won't see her again because her personality is not to my liking, but I will always be somewhat grateful to her for *****ing me out.

I had a horrid experience with several different ones. I had terrible leg and back pain I three different ones, even the one they tell you works differently and has no side effects.

I will never take another statin again!
