So I recently had to make the switch from my Endo to Kaiser. I was really bummed about having to switch doctors but my insurance changed so I am trying to stay positive about it. So today I had my first visit to Kaiser to try to get a referral to a Endo and the doctor wants to put my on a 3 different meds. She said lot of diabetics take these (even if they don't have high cholesterol or high blood pressure). I do not have high cholesterol and I actually have fairly low blood pressure. So the doctor recommended this:
Lovastatin 10 mg daily with a meal - to protect my heart
Aspirin enteric-coated 81 mg with a meal daily- to protect heart
Lisinopril 2.5 mg 1/2 tab at night - to protect kidneys
I am not one to take meds (besides insulin of course!) so I am a little weary of all these meds. I asked her about side effects and she said there is none (which I don't believe).
Is anyone else being subscribed these or had a positive/negative experience?
