Meds No More!

Day 163: 2007 04 19, originally uploaded by CraftyGuy.

I was put on lovastatin about 9 months ago for my high cholesterol. I put up with taking it for a couple of months, and came to the realization that I really couldn't afford the extra $10/month to keep getting this refilled, so I stopped taking it.

I lucked out, because currently my cholesterol level is at an all-time low (could be lower, but I'm still pleased with the progress as is my doctor). During my doctor's visit today (to discuss various things attendant to reaching certain...ah... "milestones" in my life -- yeah I'll be turning 40 in a little over a week), he decided that I no longer needed to be on any meds for my cholesterol! Oh, happy day!!

  1. Congrats on dropping the meds. It's a happy day when you don't have to take any meds (other than happy meds, of course.)
