There is no such thing as an unbuildable kit, just some kits one may consider not worth building.

but says I need them, I take half a dose (Dr. had a cow when she found out) but I'm still fine on the numbers, so I won that one!

At this point, pretty much everything has a multitude of warning labels.

The proliferation of warning labels has finally succeeded in achieving it's final result: I no longer pay attention to warning labels.

In fact, I'm seriously thinking of taking up cigarette smoking .

had my liver function monitored during pyhsicals, and have had zero proeblems - at all! ON the other hand, my mother died at 64 as a direct result of high genetic chlorestoral -- think I'll keep taking them.

Thanks for the link. Looks like my doc and I are going to have a little sit down about this. My cholesterol has always been below 200, but now he does not like the "ratio". Seeing as how I am diabetic and lost my brother (also diabetic) to live failure, I will definitely follow up on this.

Thanks again,

JR

...and been monitored regularly during that period for liver complications, happily with NO adverse effects.

My short term memory has deteriorated somewhat, but as long as I receive a couple of pieces of addressed mail a week, I can usually remember my name - once went a week filling in forms as "dear occupant" but that was during a postal strike.

In my opinion, the benefits far outweigh the possible risks.

who is a pawn of the drug companies and a indoctrinated doctor who peddles their products.

He was in good health, had a little bit of high blood pressure, nothing serious. It was environmental, stressing work place full of drama. The doctor put him on something to help...two months later he added yet another.

He was taking 9 different pills and more than half of them were to counter the side effects of the others. He had to make a decision, as he lost his job and health insurance, he had to pick eating or paying for his meds.

Fortunately he found a doctor with some sense. Weened him off all of the meds and put him on a prescription of proper diet and exercise.

Even with all of the stresses of life, he is healthy, energetic and happy. The low energy and depressive state when away almost immediately after quitting the pills.

Oh and he has found a new job too!

The VA had a list of meds that they wanted me on...but even to their surprise I'm doing just fine without them. What you put into your body does make a difference...and thinking there is a pill for that, doesn't mean the problem is solved, it often leads to new and different ones.

Are the side effects worth the return...most times the side effects are worse that what is being treated with the medication! The human body has a habit of accumulation...minute things add up over time to be major concerns. A little liver issue grows into a huge and lethal one. Mileage may vary.

What was I going to say...I don't remember.

But seriously folks...

I started on Zocor six years ago after a mild heart attack, but a couple years back the doc switched me to Crestor. I've known about the memory issues for a long time and my short term memory is totally shot. It's frustrating, but the drug keeps me alive. I think it's a good trade-off.

And, yes, on more than one occasion I've clicked to reply to a posting here and other forums, and completely lost track of what I wanted to say. When that happens, I just move on.
