Hello again

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for the feedback.

Since how long you are taking Prolomet and for what reason it was started?

Get an ecg and an echocardiogram done just to rule out any underlying cardiac abnormalities.

Also you need to start daily exercise and gradually increase the duration to atleast 40mins a day. Also you need to adopt healthy eating avoiding junk food as much possible.

Also repeat your fasting lipid profile and uric acid levels.

Kind regards

Hi XXXXXXX

Thank you for the update.

I had done both the ECG and Echo last time and it was fine. I will try to attach it in the thread as soon as I get it. Lipid Profile I will do that in few days. I am avoiding Junk Food for a long time now and don't eat it.
Prolomet XL 25 was given by a Cardiologist when I initially had High Cholesterol last year as my LDL was about 170-180 so he told to take that course for about 2 months and it came back to normal levels after that period. Then after 6 months as my routine switched to sitting mostly and no exercise I got high cholesterol again.

Detailed Answer:
Prolomet has nothing to do with cholesterol lowering. It’s given for heart rate control.

Rosuvastatin is used for cholesterol control.
