If John McCain stops taking Vytorin . . . shouldn't you switch too?

John McCain's doc switched him from Vytorin . . . to generic simvastatin.

According to a pool report based on the review of the records, Mr. McCain’s cholesterol level was recorded as high in 2003, with a total cholesterol of 226 and an LDL, or harmful cholesterol, of 139, and an HDL, or good cholesterol, of 35.

Mr. McCain was put on Vytorin, a medication which worked in reducing his cholesterol in subsequent checks, but he was taken off earlier this year in the wake of reports that the drug may not work and might even speed up the growth of fatty plaques in the arteries.

Mr. McCain was instead put on simvastatin, which the records said did not reduce his cholesterol by as much but was deemed “acceptable.”
