It brought my cholesterol down from 214 to 162. It brought my LDL down from 138 to 91. My only complaint is that my doctor did not tell me that it is the same as any other Satin drug and that I need liver tests and etc. I get it from COSTCO, Weider brand.

I have been taking Red Yeast Rice since Oct. 2009, (600mg x 2/day) within 6 months my cholesterol went from 267 to 241. My doc was pleased. The next 6 months it only dropped another 4 pts. But, I'm still taking it. I have developed IBS, but I'm not sure the RYR was the contributor to that.
