Have any of you here also taken cholesterol meds while battling a drinking problem?
I do not have a diagnosis if any liver disease and I no longer drink but did drink esxcessively for years . My cholesterol is high. I really think it’s possible that I hurt my liver from past behavior, it’s just not apparent yet.
My previous cholesterol meds not only caused terrible muscle pains, including the liver area, but abnormal liver function tests. The tests returned to normal when I stopped the med.
Now my doctor is strongly urging a new med because of my cholesterol. I want to try it but I’m nervous about the impact in my liver.
