Lowering “bad” cholesterol and triglycerides and raising “good” cholesterol decreases the risk of heart disease and helps to prevent strokes and heart attacks.In addition to eating a proper diet (such as a low cholesterol/low-fat diet), other lifestyle changes that may help this medication work better include exercising, losing weight if overweight, and stopping smoking. Talk with your doctor for more details.
