Simvastatin Fatigue Causes and Reviews


Everyone feels tired now and then. Sometimes you may just want to stay in bed. But, after a good night's sleep, most people feel refreshed and ready to face a new day. If you continue to feel tired for weeks, it's time to see your doctor. He or she may be able to help you find out what's causing your Fatigue and recommend ways to relieve it.

Fatigue itself is not a disease. Medical problems, treatments, and personal habits can add to Fatigue. These include

  • Taking certain medicines, such as antidepressants, antihistamines, and medicines for nausea and pain
  • Having medical treatments, like chemotherapy and radiation
  • Recovering from major surgery
  • Anxiety, stress, or depression
  • Staying up too late
  • Drinking too much alcohol or too many caffeinated drinks
  • Pregnancy

One disorder that causes extreme Fatigue is chronic Fatigue syndrome (CFS). This Fatigue is not the kind of tired feeling that goes away after you rest. Instead, it lasts a long time and limits your ability to do ordinary daily activities.

Simvastatin Fatigue Reviews

Sat, 07 May 2011

I've been on Simvastatin for 4 months. Constipation has gone away. Still have headaches, gas, hair loss, Fatigue and brown spots on my nose. Don't know about brown spots, maybe thats not the drug. :)

Mon, 08 Sep 2008
Muscle Fatigue, Fatigue generally, loss of appetite, hoarseness, swelling of the tongue, regular nausea. I stopped taking cold after three weeks. I called my doctor to ask about any problems by stopping cold and never even got a call back.
Fri, 13 Feb 2009
Zocor side efefcts for me: Muscle pains (shoulder, thighs, back, calves, hips and shin bones), peripheral neuropathy in feet, slight numbness in tongue and lips, wrist soreness, balance problems, Fatigue. Went for an easy hike and ended up in agony on Feb. 8, 2009. Called Dr. who ordered a CPK (Creatine phospokinase)blood test. Spec is less than 173, mine was 247. Doctor ordered me to cut Zocor from 40 mg a day to 20 mg. I did not tell him (he is pill pusher that I had stopped Zocor on Feb.8. It's been five days now and my muscles don't hurt as bad; the peripheral neuropathy in my feet is gone at night but comes back in the day but less than what it was. I was on Simvastatin (Zocor) for 2 1/2 months or so but did not take it every day. I have come to believe that many Drs. are pill pushers for Big Pharma. I have Diabetes II and my cholesterol reading was 160. I have now switched to a cholesterol reducing diet and seem to be making progess also in reducing my glucose readings. I encourage all to challenge Drs advice by first doing your homework. I won't be going back to him as he gets pissed off if you don't do what he wants. There are other Drs. who may not be as paranoid about cholesterol. Have used COQ10 recently to help myself as statin use robs the body of the COQ10.
Tue, 02 Nov 2010
My Dr. prescribed only 20 mgs. Simvastatin, but recently Fatigue and swelling of elelids caused me to stop taking it for a few weeks. On reading about side-effects I discovered (which I should have done by reading the insert that came with the meds) that I should not consume alcohol while taking the med. My Dr. certainly knew that I enjoy drinking wine. I stopped the meds, my swelling of eyelids has gone down, and I am thinking about switching Docs. Has anyone else experienced bloating as a result of this drug and drinking? Misinformed.
