Blog Entries With Tag: Lipitor

I recently wrote about Red Yeast Rice as an alternative to statins and the fact that it actually IS a statin since they contain the same active ingredients.  You just don't know how much you're getting in an over-the-counter (OTC) product.

In today's Boston Globe, there is a new article, Cholesterol Condundrum, discussing statins, red yeast rice, and some new studies of both.  They also discuss the fact that people don't tend to consistently take prescribed statins for a variety of reasons.
