Has anyone ever taken a statin drug for high cholesterol?


My doctor has been trying for years to get me to take a statin to lower my LDL cholesterol, and I have resisted. I do not suffer from high blood pressure or hear disease. Now I'm seeing a new doctor and he also prescribed a statin. If anyone has ever used this drug, what was your experience? Did it lower your LDL, and if yes, how long did it take?

    I plan to change my diet too - more vegetables and fewer carbs, and exercise more. What is the DASH diet?
