    I was only on it for a month because all I had were a month's worth of samples, but I noticed a big improvement in how I felt in general. My current Part D provider refuses to cover it, even after my doctor having talked to them, so it's no more Advicor for me.

    While Advicor works great to lower my cholesterol and triglycerides, it causes massive flushing, itching, severe enough to last hours, despite taking aspirin with it, per my Dr instructions. It's bad enough of a side effect that I cannot take the meds any longer.
