    I have tolerated crestor really well. I'm sorry for all the people who have had bad experiences. That is truly awful. I have been very fortunate in my experience.

    I was on this about 120 days and my lipid levels were very good.(LDL at 60).One morning I got up and found I could put no weight on my right leg. Went to urgent care, did xrays, and nothing was found. Dr. found nothing wrong and said "stuff happens"I knew Crestor was powerful so I stopped and overnight I was able to walk again. Go figure. I may try red rice yeast now.
