Comment:
This has done an excellent job dropping my cholesterol levels from 216 down to around 130. I don't think I've had any of the side-effects that others have mentioned related to Crestor. I did have some lower back pain last year, but I don't think it had much to do with the drug, which I'd been taking for around a 1/2 year at that point, as with my laziness and lack of regular exer ...

After about a week on this med I started having stomach aches and pain in top left stomach. Constapated so bad I thought I would never be able to go to the bathroom again.

Arthritis has been ruled out. My orthopedic hand specialist raised his eyebrows when I asked him if this was caused by statins. He said possibly yes since x-rays show I have very healthly joints and bones in my h ... Show Full Comment

READ THIS REVIEW. Within 3-4 weeks I developed unusual sensations in my thighs which woke me up at night - like a million ants were crawling, like electricity was running through them, or like they were vibrating. Through the day I would be fine, and at night I would fall asleep fine. But after a few hours of sleep I would wake up with that sensation and need to massage my legs, hold them up in th ...
