The nurse from Dr. Hall's called and said he wants me to go back on Zocor because my cholesterol levels are extremely high. 247 mg/dL Coronary Heart Disease Risk 5.3% Ratio and Sodium Levels Low 135 mMol/L. I told the nurse NO! I cannot go back on Zocor because of what happened the last time. She said she would talk to the Dr. and call me back. She called back 5 minutes later and said he wants me to start taking 1- 10 mg Zetia pill daily. I said I won't do that either. I am already on 4 medications, and really don't want to start a 5th. I asked her if he could prescribe something natural, a vitamin or something. She said she would have to ask him and would call me back. She called back 10 minutes later and said he recommended Omega 3 Fish Oil...take 3 - 1000 mg a day. I said Yes! I would go out and buy them today. I did, and I took my first 3 pills later that day.
