If your doctor prescribes cholesterol-lowering medication, be sure you know the answers to the following questions before leaving your doctor's office:
- How much should you take?
- How often should you take it?
- What time of day should it be taken?
- How should you take it? (With food, etc.)
- What other drugs cannot be taken at the same time?
- What are the possible side effects? (And let your doctor know if you have any.)
