    I have glaucoma and use Latanaprost nightly. I've been prescribed Pravastatin for cholesterol. Can I take this medication safely? Will it affect my glaucoma in anyway?
    Thank you.

    It has been reported that omeprazole can cause high cholesterol levels. Due to Barret's esophagus and hiatal hernia, and having been diagnosed with a pre-cancerous polyp and severe scaring in my esophagus caused by a lifetime of GERD which I was born with, my doctor warns against stopping the use of it. I also have high triglycerides. Both cholesterol and triglyceride high levels started about the same time I started on Nexium due to the scarring in 2002, and have been on Nexium followed by omeprazole until this time. I have tried every alternative, natural and otc and have also tried weaning off but nothing works. I would like to stop and see if it makes a difference in the labs on cholesterol and triglycerides but have been unable to do so. Has anyone taken these prescriptions for a long duration and seen any difference in those lab reports after quitting?

    I have high cholesterol and muscle pain. I have taken Flonase for many years.
    Did anyone have reduction of these symptoms after stopping Flonase? If so, how long did it take?

    Hi Everyone,
    I joined this group in hopes of finding out why my cholesterol is steadily increasing. I have been taking 15mg of methotrexate for almost five years and my overall has risen from 165 to now at 212 and my LDL is 140; Conversely, my HDL (Good Chol) has gone from 39 to 47. I have been exercising and watching what I eat, so why is one showing so much improvement and the other much worse? Thanks for any input, Ann

    My dr says I will drop dead from my high cholesterol total of 273. I have been taking 450 XL Wellbutrin for 18 months. So he thinks the solution is to take a Statin. I get bad side effects from Statins. Maybe I should reduce my Wellbutrin dose and see if my cholesterol goes down a little. I am frustrated trying to figure this out without any support.
