Does Nexium Have An Effect On Cholesterol Levels?
I am just wondering if there is any evidence that Nexium made my cholesterol go up? I would gladly stop taking it if I didn't have to take the statins.
No, I was unable to find research linking Nexium with raised cholesterol levels. If you prefer not taking statin meds, you can make some dietary/lifestyle changes to lower cholesterol naturally. Here's a link to learn more about options - http://www.healthcentral.com/cholesterol/lifestyle.html?ic=4026. Also, I recommend reviewing the post below:
