I have recently started taking Vasacor and am a little confused about when and how much to take. The bottle says 2 capsules in the evening and 1 in the morning. Can you please clarify for me? Thank You,
AskDocWeb: We interpret that to mean you are suppose to take one when you wake up and two before you go to sleep at the end of your day.
What if I use Vasacor longer than eight weeks. In other words, the longer I use it the lower my cholesterol get?
AskDocWeb: No, like everything else, there are limits. But there is a school of thought that suggests the lower the cholesterol level you can achieve, the lower your risk of cardiovascular disease. The concern about stopping is that your cholesterol level may increase again, and if that happens, your risk of heart disease and stroke also increases. With that line of reasoning it is best to continue taking it to keep your cholesterol level under control.
Subj: I have a question
I ordered three bottles and am looking forward to good results. But how many capsules should I take? In the add above it is recommended to take Vasacor at night – how many? On the bottle it is marked 3x daily, one in the morning and two at night. What would be best please? Thanks.
AskDocWeb: Take as directed on the bottle.
Subj: How many a day?
I have ordered this product and found one difference in how they want you to take the product. I noticed that you mention 1x day with evening meal but bottle I purchased says 1 in morning with water and 2 at bedtime. Which is the correct and or best way to take this product?
AskDocWeb: They probably changed the directions since that report was published. Always follow the directions on the container, they are the most up to date.
Subj: Pleased with results
I have been taking Vasacor for about 6 months and have been very pleased with the results. My Cholesterol was around 250 and the last time I checked it I was at 162. I take one in the morning and two at night.
Subj: Do not want to use prescription drugs
With so many products out there, how does one know what is better than another? My total cholesterol is 310 HDL is 88 and LDL is 201. I do not want to use perscription drugs if I can avoid it. Your suggestions?
AskDocWeb: You might try Vasacor but, if you are looking for alternatives for prescription drugs then you have the FDA working against you. According to the FDA only drugs can have health benefits. If you do a search on “FDA’s Warning Letters To Cherry Farmers” (use the quotes) you’ll find a good example of this in a BuinessWeek article that explains it in detail. The FDA has also attacked walnut producers for publishing the health benefits of eating walnuts!
Subj: Lowered my cholesterol
I have been taking Vasacor for approx. 8 weeks, and have lowered my total cholesterol from 261 to 228. My question is, do you recommend continuing to take Vasacor even after I reach an acceptable number? Thanks for you reply.
AskDocWeb: We don’t recommend taking Vasacor forever. If you make the appropriate changes to your diet and exercise then you may be able to keep your cholesterol level where you want it.
Subj: Blood thinners?
I want to purchase Vasacor but it says that it shouldn’t be combined with blood thinners. I am taking low dose asperin every day. Will that cause any danger?
AskDocWeb: You may be out of luck there but if you contact their customer service, they should be able to tell you.
Subj: Does Vasacor really increase HDL and lower LDL?
I have been reading several reviews for Vasacor. Most people are pleased with the result of total cholesterol. My question is does it really increase the HDL and lower the LDL. As the most important risk factor is from the ratio of the HDL to the LDL. Thank you
AskDocWeb: Yes, according to the manufacturer, the ingredients in Vasacor have been proven to reduce the low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL), and increases high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL). This has been verified by checking by checking the Clinical Studies.
