Bone density in hips severe, take Crestor (rosuvastatin) for high cholesterol, mother stroke at 77. Dr. Recommends Evista, so many scary side effects. Yes or no?

Evista (raloxifene) has. been shown to help prevent spine fractures, but does NOT help prevent hip fractures, so I couldn't recommend it for that reason. The crestor will help bone density a little. Make sure you're taking the proper calcium and vitamin D. THere are other options, and it depends upon whether you have been on other therapy before. check w/your doctor. Read more...

Back to the migraine. To stop the headaches, maybe a triptan, and to prevent the headaches, many choices either prescription or otc, so discuss with a headache specialist. Glad your cholesterol is getting controlled, but Crestor (rosuvastatin) has no effect on migraine, good or bad. Lastly, why do you take gingko, discuss that with your doc also. Read more...

Why?? Why the repeated BS???? Fasting or not??? Small rise in BS with statin is not important. Stop getting BS. A1C is a much better test for you. Why spend a fortune on Crestor when a generic rosuvastatin gives exactly the same benefits at a fraction of the price? Read more...
