This drug is dangerous with lifetime permanent side effects. If your doctor prescribe this to you make sure that he or she (doctor) are expert listener with side effects. When you feel any kind mussel,’s pain STOP this drug immediately or suffer a lifetime of severe complications’.

I am 66, have the gene for the high cholesteral. I took Lipitor 40 + Zetia and was so lame (charley horses !!) I could barely make the stairs. I now take Vytorin for the past few months and cholesteral numbers about the same as with the Lipitor. Weight going up with the Vytorin plus synthroid and Operamizol. Tired to stop the cholesteral med for a few months and #'s went way up over 300 fast. Cost of anything non generic is getting to be a real problem too.
