A 92-year-old member asked:

If i stop crestor (rosuvastatin) then all i take is 5mg lisinopril daily, at 92. i guess that is ok even though i never took pills in my life before.?

You're healthy!: May i humbly suggest that you are healthy and lived to 92 without cholesterol medication - then you certainly don't need them now! be healthy through lifestyle - good diet, exercise, a few supplements to support as needed! you are an example of the over-prescription of these medications in the U.S.!

I think you may have also outlived any benefit of lisinopril.
