    I have a lot of reactions to several types of medications. I tried several different cholesterol meds and had problems. I always take it with food. I have been on Livalo for 2 weeks and no reactions. For me, it deserves a high rating.

    I started out taking Llvalo 2 mg 3 times/wk working toward every day along with Zetia. It seemed to affect my emotional state and my legs. Stopped taking it and the dr told me to take 1mg 3 times/wk of Livalo only. It really affected my emotions. I cried a lot and was not very nice to my husband. He knew every time I took it. I stopped 4 days ago and have noticed a difference already. Has any one ... Show Full Comment
