Alternatives to Advicor

In general, cholesterol treatment begins with lifestyle changes (weight loss, exercise, and a low-cholesterol diet). If lifestyle changes alone do not lower cholesterol to a desirable level, however, medication such as Advicor may be necessary.
The main goal of high cholesterol medication is to lower LDL cholesterol levels enough to reduce your risk for developing problems such as heart disease or a heart attack (see Effects of High Cholesterol). The higher your risk, the lower your LDL goal will be.
(Click High Cholesterol Risk to see a list of risk factors that may affect your cholesterol level and a general guideline of ideal LDL cholesterol levels.)
For most people, Advicor is quite effective in lowering cholesterol. Side effects can occur, however, and people may wish to consider a substitute. These substitutes could include other statins or other cholesterol medicines.
