Shipped fast - well packaged - appears to be a good Statin

Yes, this package was received in California quickly (in about 12 days) and was well packaged. Since this is a cholesterol lowering drug - I won't know if it is working like it should until my next cholesterol blood test. I will let you know if my cholesterol doesn't come down in the next blood test - the drug does appear to be the correct Atorvastatin dose - so I am trusting that what's on the packaging is actually in the pill!
