OMG after 19 months and the last 12 or so under intense arthritis and muscle pain...how do I lknow this, I stopped taking it...now I feel like a fool as all my ortho docs thought I was nuts for having so many problems. So, comes to find out it was the medicine after all. I don't think I will ever take a statin drug again. I feel 10 times better since stopping the medicine!!!

I have been on Vytorin for at least five years with no side effects at all. Recently my doctor lowered the dosage due to its effectiveness. So far I am extremely pleased with the results.

Vytotin dropped my LDL from 98 to 49 in 6 weeks, LDL stabilized at 40 after 6 months. Heart disease has reversed, Ebt scan now shows 0 placque. Carotid artery stenosis is reversing. No discernable side effects.
