dear friend,
Your question is good but keep one thing in mind, your doctor has personally examined you and given you this advice. He is more likely to give good relief than someone on the net who has not even seen you.
Another thing, tell us the CONTENTS of these medicines that you have written.
They are the Brand Names. You must write the smaller letters written underneath.
That is called the Pharmacological name. This name will be the same all over the world.
To the best of my knowledge this advice is good.
If you don't get relief, contact me.
Dr. Hemant B. MD

I have been taking Lipitor 10mg once a day for over 10 years, can you just stop taking this medicine. My doctor says I have to be on it for life. I want to try a natural supplement.
