    My cholesterol levels were normal, but the cardiologist told me to add a statin to further reduce LDL to prevent further occlusion of the carotid artery. According to the motto: What is not in the blood, can not settle. First, we tried simvastatin, which resulted in muscle pain in a short time. Then I was prescribed Crestor, which initially also showed slight muscle pain, but soon disappeared almost completely. Well, after about 10 months, I sometimes have calf cramps at night, but they could also come from somewhere else. To reduce the risk, I tried to lower the Crestor dose to 5 mg right from the start. I divided the 10 mg pill in the middle with the kitchen knife, doing each time the remaining half back into the pack to keep track. After 14 days I had the values measured and found my idea confirmed: The LDL values were also great with 5mg. This method has the great advantage of halving the now enormously increased co-payments and simultaneously burdens the body with much less chemistry. The manufacturers are probably not so happy to read this method … Below, I have ticked, the side effect lasts, but only because the choices are too small. There would still have to be a way to assess the severity of the side effects. I would tick it off easily.

    Crestor for Cholesterol value increase

    I was prescribed Crestor 20 2008 in Canada by my family doctor. my cholesterol value was for years slightly above the norm, deposition in abdominal veins could not be detected with ultrasound yet. The initial examination in Canada of an increase in the value (probably an indicator of muscle breakdown / heart attack) was slightly positive but harmless and disappeared quickly. again in Germany, the dose was reduced to 10 mg as a result of the good examination results. the result of the cholesterol analysis shows that crestor is a very effective drug. Regarding the side effects I have to say that they strengthened with me and therefore I decided with my doctor crestor temporal to settle to explore the causal relationship. 1. Muscle pain and massive muscle tension in the neck, shoulder area, lumbar area after jogging in the thighs and calves 2. Occasional nocturnal calf cramps (also without sport) which I did not know even after 10km of running, which is why I suspect a connection here too 3. Increase of one tinnitus, which may be hereditary, but I will monitor the reports here as well. 4. to comment on the other reports, I have not found any influence on my conclusion, if you tolerate crestor well it is a very good cholesterol-lowering drug, for which I would also tolerate slight muscle pain (which I have done for me too). the negative effects amplify with me but so far that my children tell me I’m out of bed like a 70-year-old (no offense – I know that many 70year olds can fool me – but it shows the observation of my teens) and that I have to do something there. and for me, too, the negative impact of my running results, especially in mountain care where the muscles hibernate quickly are no longer acceptable i will make an update if i notice any changes after weaning, good luck, that they can tolerate crestor.
