Hello, hope you can help. Amongst other BP drugs etc etc, I inject 20mg metoject weekly and take 15mg daily prednisolone. Am waiting on anti-tnf. I have been called in by GP as my cholesterol is now 9.1which I know (and GP admits) is down to steroids, which I have been on for 2.5 years and several times in the past. Does anyone take statins for steroid induced high cholesterol, and do they work? We hear so many stories about statins causing joint pain, muscle pain etc that I really don' t want to take them. I am not at all sure about anti-tnf as apparently they can cause lymphomas, which I have already been given chemo for twice in the past and really, really don't want to go there again. Magic wand, anyone? Thanks, Virge
