I have been taking cholesterol medication since 1985 of different types. This has had the best effect of any that I have taken. I am on Vytorin 10/40 and my doctor and I are well pleased with the results. My cholesterol readings are about 115 and LDL and HDL are really good too.

I been taking vytorin 10-40 for ten years. I tried other statins but this is the only one that does not give me muscle pains. It controls my levels to below average. I am not aware of any side effects. I do have problems sleeping at timed but not sure it is related to Vytorin.

My experience with statin medications have all been problematic. Brain fog confusion I cannot accept. Pain in muscles generally in all extremities, shoulders, back,neck, behind ears. Weakness in small activities,no energy to perform short tasks. Grocery shopping has become unbearable and exhausting. At age 73 in not supposed to be reduced to just existing at home. This medication was prescribed after traditional simvastatin had resulted in the same side effects. Additionally urine has been dark more than once each day. Chest pain occurs while I try to rest nightly. Insomnia is present also.Read More Read Less
