I have been taking this medication for 8 months. After going on vacation in the 7th month I experienced very bad shoulder pain, and neck pain extending in the right side of my neck, which would come and go. I have now stopped taking it and monitoring the situation to see if my neck pain will go away. This may be my last try with Statins. I had previously tried Crestor and it was not very good b ...

I have taken this drug for over 3 mos. and my cholesterol went down 60 points and I have not had muscle pain which I had with many other statins. But, I have a constant runny nose and I am starting to see hair loss. So, I will see how this goes for now.
