Q. I have been on Lipitor now for several months and I am not sure but I feel like my thinking is not as sharp as it used to be. Have there been other reports about this?
   A. Yes. Here is an interesting article about statin drugs affecting brain health,http://jamanetwork.com/journals/jamainternalmedicine/article-abstract/1918928. The article is entitled "Statin-Related Cognitive Impairment in the Real World: You’ll Live Longer, but You Might Not Like It."
    There are many other natural ways to reduce cholesterol levels. You can try different supplements separately or purchase a cholesterol management formula, seewww.raysahealian.com/cholesterol.html. In my opinion the jury is still out as to whether most people taking statin drugs for cholesterol lowering will live longer. There are so many natural options to first try before resorting to medications.
