Simvastatin Insomnia Causes and Reviews


Insomnia is a common sleep disorder. If you have it, you may have trouble falling asleep, staying asleep, or both. As a result, you may get too little sleep or have poor-quality sleep. You may not feel refreshed when you wake up.

Symptoms of Insomnia include:

  • Lying awake for a long time before you fall asleep
  • Sleeping for only short periods
  • Being awake for much of the night
  • Feeling as if you haven't slept at all
  • Waking up too early

Your doctor will diagnose Insomnia based on your medical and sleep histories and a physical exam. He or she also may recommend a sleep study. A sleep study measures how well you sleep and how your body responds to sleep problems. Treatments include good sleep habits, counseling, and medicines.

Simvastatin Insomnia Reviews

Fri, 07 Oct 2011

extreme muscle pain in legs, shoulders, neck and back. already had fibromyalgia and this was worse than any pain had previous to taking Simvastatin. I was on it a yr. I had chonic Insomnia, chest pain like pneumonia, so tired couldn't hardly move. constipation and just a feeling of my health getting worse and worse. my memory had gotten so bad my daughter mentioned that in the last yr. I had gotten so much worse and complained more about it. I took myself off two weeks ago, started myself on coq10 300mg. I found out simvastin deletes you of it. I also am taking a vitamin/herb for enhanced memory. At first I still had lots of pain, I seem to be getting somewhat better. Hope I continue to get better. I'd rather have high cholestrol than have all these health issues, at least I'd have a better quality of life. I think this drug is pushed way too much on the public. I wonder about all the dementia and alzeimer patients if they really have as bad a case or would have if they had not been treated with this drug as some of them have.
