I am on many medications but I have already had a bad side effect on 20 mg of Simvastatin and the doctor wants to try Atorvastatin but I was put on Plaquenil and I know I shouldn't take the two due to Peripheral Neuropathy problems that can occur and I have a history Auto Immune problems now but I also have Hyperlipidemia. Is there anything I can do? I have Trigeminal Neuralgia with Migraine , Fibromyalgia, bursitis and now the beginnings of Rheumatoid Arthritis among other problems that seem to keep sprouting up over the past 2 years since I collapsed at work. I was a Cook by trade travelling across the country working at resorts when I became ill and was healthy and active. I really need to find a way to lower my cholesteral and I'm already doing it by diet change and what exercise I can do. My father has 3 stents in his heart and he was lucky they found it in time during an angiogram.
