Good morning!

When I saw my PCP yesterday, she took me off Lipitor, which I have been on for years.  I am looking forward to being able to eat one of my favorite fruits again, grapefruit!

Since I started this journey, in addition to Lipitor, my PCP has taken me off Metformin (for Metabolic Syndrome and Polycystic Ovaries) and Amlopidine (for High Blood Pressure). My Diovan (for High Blood Pressure) has been reduced from Diovan-HCT (diuretic) to Diovan, and the dose has been reduced, from 320, to 160, to 80 and now we are phasing it out with half a pill a day. I hope to be off my high blood pressure in a month. 

SO happy my pill box is getting less and less full!

Hope everyone enjoys a wonderful day!

Best wishes for continued successes!

Although I am still on Lipitor I too am off a lot of drugs. I think this was one of my greatest NSVs as well.

Way to go! I am looking forward to reducing my medications soon. I see a new PCP in a few weeks and am hoping we can start the adjustments.
