Comment:
Started taken RYR, one per day about a week ago. I have had very, very bad diarrhea & have felt very bad, low energy and not sleeping well ever since. I do not think this treatment is for everyone, as good as most of the reviews are. Use caution! It has to be really strong to cause such bad side effects.

My cholesterol dropped from 267 to 216 after taking 1 red yeast rice pill a day for 11 months. My triglicerides dropped 45 points. I am just thrilled. The lipitor made my legs ache.

Comment:
My doctor told me to start taking red yeast rice to get my cholesterol in check. As soon as I started taking it I developed a yeast infection that has been lasting almost 4 or 5 months now and wont go away. Not sure if it would have ended up lowering my cholesterol, but the side effects are not worth it anyway.
