Rosuvastatin (40mg) for high cholesterol

I've been taking statins since my 20s for really high cholesterol, above 10. I'm not overweight, run 3 x a week and walk a lot. I first started on Zocor and I'm now on Crestor. Unfortunately I've now got the same side effects as when I took simvastatin. Really suffering with muscle pain. My wrists especially, and it's getting worse. And the muscles in my behind and thighs are really painful, mo...

Rosuvastatin (10mg) for high cholesterol

Because I felt like I was having really bad side effects with sim/atorvastatin, I was moved on to Crestor (rosuvastatin) by my cardiologist. I started on 20/4. On holiday I was up to 24/4 when I developed severe muscle pain but I couldn't reach my doctor. I carried on taking them regardless and didn't have any further problems. Perhaps the side effects were due to the fact that the atorvastatin...

Rosuvastatin (5mg) for heart attack

After experiencing muscle pains from taking simvastatin and atorvastatin, the cardiologist prescribed me crestor. Prescribed on 20 April and by 24 April I'm experiencing severe muscle pain in my left hand. I don't know what to do and I don't really want to hassle the cardiologist (again). BTW, I've had 2x heart attacks and 6x stents which is why I need cholesterol-lowering medicine.

Rosuvastatin (10mg) for high cholesterol

In conjunction with the GP I have experimented a lot with medication. Ultimately it seemed that Crestor was the best solution. I've been using this medicine for 10 years now and the past few years I have been experiencing more and more side effects. Really suffering with tendon and muscle pain, getting worse as time has gone on. To start off with there is no/little problem, gradually though sti...

Rosuvastatin (20mg) for angina pectoris

After having symptoms of chest spasms and an irregular heartbeat, I was referred to a cardiologist. An ECG confirmed that I have angina pectoris. Straight on to blood thinners, beta blockers and cholesterol-lowering medicines like Cresto. To now few or no further symptoms. Every year check-up with the cardiologist. just great.

Rosuvastatin (20mg) for high cholesterol

(hypercholesterolemia) This is more applicable to the younger generation. :-) After a few years of trying to start a family with my wife, I asked my internist if Crestor could affect fertility, I was answered in the negative so we ended up going to the gynaecology department. Many tests were performed and it transpired that I was virtually infertile. <1 million. in the patient information leafl...

Rosuvastatin (10mg) for high cholesterol

I got type 2 diabetes in 2001. In 2010 I had to start injecting insulin. Despite having a high dose it was really difficult to get my blood sugar levels under control. In January 2016 I stopped taking Crestor due to recent scientific developments concerning cholesterol and the scandal surrounding the Dutch Heart Foundation, and started buying butter. My blood sugar levels have fallen dramatical...

Rosuvastatin (5mg) for blood thinning

To start off with, my specialist prescribed me 5 mg Crestor once a day. Following the side effects that appeared, that was reduced to 1 x 5 mg tablet every other day. My blood level has stayed the same but the pain has become bearable.

In 2007 I had a cardiac arrest and went into a coma. To start off with I took Lipitor then, with a transition period, Crestor (first 10 mg, then 20 mg). No problems during the transition. Everything was fine. Always had brilliant cholesterol.

This medicine has considerably reduced my cholesterol values. Side-effects: pain in my legs, the condition is getting worse and is restricting my walking. I know many others who also take this medicine and have the same problems, and they have ended up, one by one, in wheelchairs.

Rosuvastatin (10mg) for arthrosis

I have a mild form of arthrosis that normally doesn't cause me any problems. It only when it's cold that the symptoms are worse, partially because of the statins.

Rosuvastatin (20mg) for atherosclerosis

I had really bad problems, mostly pain in my lower back, shoulder and arms. About 14 days ago stopped taking crestor and after a few days the pain had about tripled as well as moved to my hands. It's now a constant pain. Could well be withdrawal symptoms Anyone recognise this?

Rosuvastatin (5mg) for angina pectoris

The overnight pain I have in my muscles is almost to plan. This is because there are very few nights which are pain-free. When it does hurt overnight and need to get up to go to the bathroom, the pain disappears spontaneously. Soon after getting back into bed, the pain usually comes back.
