    Crestor for Pain (acute)

    Since the intake (2 weeks) I suffer from muscle, joint and finger pain, as well as diarrhea. All these complaints were not available before taking 1 x 10mg CRESTOR daily. I suffer from a spinal stenosis in the back and my doctor is of the opinion that the above-mentioned side effects are based on it and unfortunately I am not listening. I will stop CRESTOR immediately and look for another doctor. Stay away from CRESTOR !!!

    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.

    Side effects! severe joint pain and sometimes muscle pain The high cholesterol levels were very fast with Crestor 10 on ideals, great. In addition, I take one each day: Aciclovir AL 800 (herpesvirus) Olmetec Plus 40 – (high blood pressure) Carmen 20 (high blood pressure) Only after about 2 to 3 months of daily use of Crestor 10 I felt increasingly joint pain. At first, I suppressed this pain, or brought it back to my usual, minor physical work. In the meantime I can barely walk straight in the early morning, immediately after getting up, or I can not stand and walk without pain. But not only in the morning, but now throughout the day I suffer from this pain. Especially the right knee, the right foot and mostly right middle and ring finger joints are getting more and more painful, which leads me back to taking Crestor 10. I can not roll off my right foot at times, so I’m plodding around. As of today, I will cancel Crestor, let’s see what happens. Who has had similar experiences? What is alternative? What could be done about these huge side effects? THE LUGGAGE FREAK

    Crestor for Cholesterol value increase

    Hello everybody, today I woke up from the strong muscle and joint pain in my legs. I had the pain occasionally, but so far I have not been able to find any reason for it. I’ve noticed that the pain and cramps have increased since I eat Crestor 10 mg a day. Especially bad is when I sat all day. Tonight the whole has been accompanied by the racing heart rate and increase in my blood pressure, although I regularly take Ramipril against it. Nausea in the early morning, headache & amp; Co. are permanently there. I just hope that Crestor actually helps in the long run, because that was described by my doctor as a miracle cure.

    Crestor for Pain (acute)

    I have good blood levels since taking Crestor. Only my muscle aches bothered me. Especially when I’m sitting, I’m in pain when I want to go (pending pain). Then I made myself on the Internet and talked to my doctor about it and now I take 1x a day Q10. The pain is gone and I can continue on Crestor.

    Crestor for Cholesterol value increase

    After three months taking 1 tablet to 10 mg in the evening, my cholesterol levels have completely normalized: halving the bad cholesterol and a significant increase in good cholesterol. The only downside: I suffer from muscle pain in the calves and at times nocturnal leg cramps (which is classified by the attending physician as side effects of Crestor). So far, the side effects are tolerable, but should the pain get worse, I am forced to change the drug.
