My Primary Care Doc has recommended a similar regiment for me. The
Carlson's fish oil, niacin (starting with 50mg and building up), red yeast rice and 40 mg of Lipitor or a low dose of a newer statin called Livalo. I'm hesitant to start the statin because of reports that it may inhibit remyelination since I have PPMS and feel like neurodegeneration is a bigger problem than inflammation. One of my neuros says statins are more likely to help MS than hurt but at this point in time we don't really know.
My cholesterol is super high so I have to do what I can to lower my risk for a heart attack!
