My father was diagnosed with high cholesterol; he eats healthy and is rather active and fit for a 55 y/o. He was on Lipitor and later switched to generic lipitor (simvastatin), he started getting really bad GI complications, so he stopped taking the simvastatin and has dramatically improved. He is no longer lethargic and his GI problems have reduced drastically. He just started taking Mega Red and Red Yeast Rice together, I was wondering if these two together have any severe side-effects or bad interactions we should be worried about.
*He takes both tablets right after he eats, once a day.View Thread
