I take Atrovastatin, it keeps the cholesterol down, is a tier 1 medicine, and I have no copay for a 90 day supply. Atrovastatin is the generic name for Lipitor.

Have you tried crestor? Just 5mg to start. If need be the dose can be raised. It kicked my cholesterols butt! Lol No side effects as of yet. I have been on it 3 months.
