I recently decided to stop taking Zocor. I don't even remember having cholesterol problems when I started taking it, just doing it because my MD at the time said I needed to. I have been off completely for about 3 weeks and had levels checked yesterday and was quite surprised even though I knew there could/would be a bump or rebound.
on Zocor 6 months ago chol 131, LDL 80, HDL 57, Trig 50
Now off Zocor chol 224, LDL 147, HDL 59, Trig 80
I know the LDL and total chol is too high and I can definately see where I can make some dietary changes.
I probably won't talk to the doc til next week when she receives the results and I already know what she will say, back on the Zocor.... you're a diabetic!
Have any of you experienced this bump and has it leveled out over time? if so how long?
