From this study (17 hours ago):
I have been using oxy/aceta for 3 plus yearsI only take one or two per week for really bad migraines - last year my LDL cholestrol was 170 - this week it is 201 - never, ever has my ldl been that high - it seemed to start rising with the Imitrex in 1996 ( two yrs after taking it) now it is through the roof. I have always watched what I eat so I know it isn't my diet and I drink tons of water.
My HDL is normal and so are my tricllicerides I believe the imitrex and oxy are causing the hike in my LDL. Does anyone know that these medications are causing this to happen?
What do I do?

Muscle pain, stiffness, sweats, shakes, anxiety, brain fog,
