Gawd I hate that stuff. Makes me feel like crap, muscle aches, stomach pains, and no energy. And to top it all off, I can't sleep at night, most nights I fall asleep around 4-5am...just sucks!!!

I used to take it (now on Crestor) but never had the died effects you mention - you should infirm your doctor. Muscle soreness is a known side effect though.

Talked my Doc today, he pulled me off the lipator. Have to get a blood test tomorrow, and I couldn't eat anything after 7pm. Although I could have eaten, but went to the range instead, now I'm STARVING... :doh:

At least I'll get a good nights sleep for a change.

Used to take it ... Doc moved me to Crestor ... My guess is, so will your doc ... Good luck to you!

I looked on the Crestor site. Seems it has more side effects than Lipator does.

Muscle soreness is a side effect ... However, I do not suffer from it ... My cholesterol is very high without the medication ... Like 300+ high ... So it's a value add for me. Good luck, I hope the doc finds something for you

Was on Lipitor, now on Crestor ... it is strong, so the Doc may reduce the dosage ... I am at 5 mg of Crestor, and I asked about Zetia, and take a dose of that ... one works on the liver, the other through the digestive tract (Zetia).

I also take the QoQ10 enzyme supplement.
