I have been taking vytorin for about two years and dropped my cholesteral from 309 to 172 in the first three months. I then cut back to half a pill and now I am at 177. The only bad effects I have had was when I ran out of vytorin for three weeks and my blood pressure went sky high. After two weeks of taking vytorin again my blood pressure was normal again.

I previously took Lipitor and ... Show Full Comment
