From this study (3 years ago):
*HELP- Any insight regarding the circumstance described below would be greatly appreciated.
My HDL-C was a 4 on my last lipid panel. LDL-C was around 220. 41 year old male. Height 71", weight varies 195-210lbs, due to my "elective compliance" to take Rx-ed stimulant meds described below. Presently 205lbs. BMI- 28.6, waist to height- .48 . Athletic build, but not active with exercise in 4 years.
Former user of PEDs, last time 4+ years ago. Did not take supratherapeutic doses, but more than clinical norms (approximately 500mg weekly for 10-12 weeks at a time x 13 "cycles" over a 13 year time period (ages 24-37).
Diet needs improvement. Not sure about family history of dislipidemia or CV disease.
Started on generic Lipitor 20mgs less than 3 weeks ago by PCP. I am due for another lipid panel in two weeks.
*MY IMMEDIATE CONCERN IS SPECIFIC TO THE POTENTIAL OF THE MEDS DESCRIBED BELOW, OR COMBINATIONS THEREOF, TO CAUSE MY HDL TO BE SO LOW.
I have been taking multiple CNS/psych meds (for the past 6 mo to 2+ yrs depending on which med) for: sleep (generic Ambien 10mgs & trazodone 100mgs), depression (Viibryd 40mgs & generic Wellbutrin 450mgs), anxiety (clonazepam 1 mg BID, ADD (Vyvanse 40mgs & generic Adderall 20mgs), and male pattern baldness (Avodart .5mg).
