This cholesterol medication along with another cholesterol medication both gave me heart palpitations. Stopped both medications. See What Dr. puts me on next.

I have been taking this drug (Prevesta-10) for about a year. Didnt get any major side effect and my LDL dropped to 61mg/dL but was always worried that maybe it is not good for long term so I stopped for about a month and my LDL went up to about 159 after a recent test.

Worst medication I have ever taken. Day 12, I started having leg spasms. I quit taking it then but after 2 more weeks, I could barely get out of bed , chiropractor helped but not enough. Dr sent me to physical therapy, no help. After 5 months and more chiropractor treatments I was better but 2 more months before spasms were reduced to the point I could drive again. Now I have developed a myopathy which in turn, caused breast cancer.

Took this med for about a week, but stopped due to abdominal pain. On next dr visit, dr told me to again start taking it. 10 days later, I had a significant decrease in amount of urine, which made my BPH worse. Have stopped taking this drug, flow is better, but not back to my normal.
