I have read information about statins, unfortunately, they all seem to have a nasty side effect of increasing tinnitus in people who already suffer from it. I read that Red Yeast Rice also makes tinnitus worse. It's understandable, after finding out that this supplement actually contains statins! Has anyone got any suggestions as to what to take to lower cholesterol without making tinnitus so bad that it becomes intolerable? My poor husband is not able to tolerate the level of tinnitus that he is experiencing now because of this! Help!
