High Cholesterol Medication

High cholesterol can sometimes be controlled with lifestyle changes such as an improved diet and an increase in exercise. But some people may need to take high cholesterol medication as well. The purpose of these drugs is to reduce LDL or bad cholesterol.

Statin drugs like Lipitor, Zocor and Norvir are prescribed to lower cholesterol but can have serious side effects. People taking these medications should take a Co-Enzyme
Q-10 supplement as statin drugs reduce this enzyme in the body.

Nicotinic acid/niacin in high doses can reduce LDL bad cholesterol, increase HDL good cholesterol and lower triglycerides. Fibric acids/fibrates have also been shown to have this effect. Fibrates can be found in the medications Lopid and Tricor. Bile acid sequestrates like Colestid and Questran are also prescribed as high cholesterol medication.
