Is it dangerous to take cholesterol medicine?

Cholesterol meds. Cholesterol medicines are safe to take and well tolerated. They do require monitoring for potential side affects however. Periodic lab test are needed. Any muscle pain or weakness needs medical attention.
LDL, not Cholesterol. Cholesterol is a fat molecule manufactured by every animal cell, a building block of each cell membrane (enables membrane fluidity/movement without tearing), is fundamental to the survival of every animal cell. Lipoproteins (proteins which transport all fats in the water outside cells) is the correct issue for artery disease (e.g. Ldl ?700 nmol/l, HDL ?45 µmol/l). Cholesterol ?$, but misleading.
