I was prescribed 5mg of Crestor in 2011( which coincedently was the end of menopause) and my ldl and total chol. levels started increasing since 2008. I feel that as of end of 2014 all my levels, including ldl and total chol. are now normal and want to reduce my pill by half with the intention of not taking it eventually. The following are my readings (canada), I am 56 , not overweight , all other results are normal. I am on bloodpressure meds treated for moderate bp now under control.
