    Comment:
    I have been taking Mega Beta Sitosterol for two months now and my cholesterol numbers have worsened dramatically. When I was taking prescription Welchol my numbers dropped by 80 points, now that I switched to MBS they have skyrocketed back up to where they were. I find it to be useless for my cholesterol troubles.

    I have been taking meta-sitosterol for a month and my blood pressure has shot skyward. I am an adamant walker, biker, and geocacher so it's not like I am sitting around. I will have to wait for my next blood test if I can handle the high blood pressure til then.
