Ezetrol Questions and Answers
Having tried Lipitor to reduce my cholesterol of 8.2 I suffered severe muscular pains | PatientsVille.com
Having tried Lipitor to reduce my CHOLESTEROL of 8.2 I suffered severe muscular PAINs and could not continue with the medication even though it had reduced my levels to normal. I was told that I would not be able to have STATINS so was prescribed Ezetrol which reduced my CHOLESTEROL but I suffered severe PAIN and swelling in my feet.I decided to stop taking the medication and for two years tried to reduce levels with a low fat diet,sadly this did not work so I am back on Ezetrol in the hope that all will be well this time. Having been on it for two months I notice that my ankles and feet swell in the evening and I am suffering from RESTLESS LEGS and insomnia. I wonder if this is due to the medication .I am desperate to keep my CHOLESTEROL levels down as I already have 40% clogging of my coronary artery and a strong FAMILY HISTORY of heart complaints. Would Wild salmon omega 3 really help?

Record and Track Your Side Effects
It is very important to keep track of all side effects and discuss them with your doctor. If you think you may have a medical emergency, call your doctor or 911 immediately.
Most drugs have a large list of nonsevere or mild adverse effects which do not rule out continued usage. These effects depend on individual sensitivity, and can include nausea, dizziness, diarrhea, malaise, vomiting, headache, dermatitis, dry mouth, etc. Check commonly reported side effects . These can be considered a form of pseudo-allergic reaction, as not all users experience these effects; many users experience none at all.
You are encouraged to report negative side effects of prescription drugs to the FDA. Visit the FDA MedWatch website or call 1-800-FDA-1088.
