Jim is currently taking Crestor (lowers cholesterol), Coreg (betablocker), Plavix (prevents blood clots), Niaspan (raises HDL level) and PantoPrazole (to heal ulcers and protect stomach from Niaspan and Plavix) daily. His blood pressure runs around 105/68. He walks a treadmill for 40-50 minutes 4 times/week, walks or swims or bikes 3 days/week. He is doing very well.
