It's worked wonders for blood fats, BUT I was wondering why food doesn't have much taste anymore. I keep eating stuff, thinking that it will eventually taste good, if I just eat enough!

Comment:
tried all statins.Various bad side effects (muscle deterioration, memory loss, vertigo, etc.)with each one. Finally gave up statins. General health improved considerably. Started Fenofibrate, later combined with Zetia and numbers came down to same range as with statins- and no indicated side effects!

Insomnia or restless sleep. I am already a fibromyalgia patient with struggles with sleep, I don't need more. Less sleep = more body pain = more pain medicine.
