Simvastatin Myalgia 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.
