Red Rice Yeast

I've been asked three times in the last two days now if one can take red rice yeast in combination with a statin. The answer is basically no. The Red Rice Yeast functions chemically just like a weak statin, so it would be similar scenario to taking two statins at the same time. You won't see much of an improvement in your lipid panel, and you could increase the risk of rhabdo, transaminitis, etc.
