Has your doctor ever warned you about taking statins with grapefruits? It may seem like a strange association, but certain statins like Lipitor (atorvastatin) and Zocor (simvastatin) that are used to lower cholesterol levels can interact with grapefruit and grapefruit juice and cause harmful side effects.

Dr. Sharon Orrange -

Of the non-genetic causes of birth defects, medications are a well-known offender. Early in the first trimester, many women don’t yet know that they are pregnant. This is a high-risk time to be taking certain medications as this is the major period of organogenesis or development of the organs.

While the science is very limited (pregnant women are generally not included in medication safety studies) there are a handful of medications that are considered category X drugs, or drugs that should not be taken in women who are or may become pregnant. See More

Is High Cholesterol Actually Bad for You?

Dr. Sharon Orrange
Dr. Sharon Orrange -

High cholesterol may be much ado about nothing, especially in older folks. A recent meta-analysis published in BMJ Open raises a strong argument that lowering LDL cholesterol in older people doesn’t help at all.

Where does this leave us? Are we over-treating millions of folks with cholesterol lowering drugs, “statins” like Lipitor (atorvastatin), Crestor (rosuvastatin), and Zocor (simvastatin)? Let’s take a look. See More

Dr. Sharon Orrange
Dr. Sharon Orrange -

The best treatment in diseases such as atherosclerosis, or coronary artery disease, is prevention. Lifestyle changes like exercise, quitting smoking and changing your diet are an important place to start, but sometimes you just need more help.

There are some options out there, but before I show you some promising and well-studied plants that may help lower cholesterol, please remember a few things: these are unregulated and may carry issues of toxicity. See More

10 Things Your Doctor Won’t Tell You About Statins

Dr. Sharon Orrange

Statins are among the most commonly prescribed drugs in the world for a reason: they can lower your LDL cholesterol (the “bad cholesterol”) by 20 – 60%. Statins are also helpful for the prevention of heart disease in some people with high cholesterol.

Popular statin medications include generic atorvastatin (Lipitor) and simvastatin (Zocor) and brand-name Crestor and Livalo.

Dr. Sharon Orrange
Dr. Sharon Orrange -

Two very different sets of guidelines exist for when to use cholesterol lowering medications in children transitioning into adulthood. Should those aged 17 – 21 with high cholesterol be on a cholesterol-lowering drug—a statin drug? How and when to treat those younger than 40, and especially those folks 17 – 21, is not nearly as well studied as in older folks, so guidelines are based on expert recommendations from limited data in this age group.
