Una would love to hear your comments. “Hi ladies. I have taken cholesterol tablets (Ezetrol and Rosuvastatin Krka) for the last 13 years.
I have always had muscle pain taking the meds and my doctor has changed the meds over the years.
At the moment, I’m on the above meds and have had really bad muscle pains so I would give myself a couple of weeks free from the meds as I was on holidays. I am 62 and the difference is amazing (since stopping the meds), but I know I have to go back on them. I was wondering if anyone else had this reaction to cholesterol tablet.
My cholesterol is at an acceptable level now due, I presume, to the meds. They have stopped me from walking, which I have done to keep my mind and body active and also something I love to do. The results of not walking for me are weight gain and feeling very down. It’s a vicious circle, if I don’t take the meds I could end up with another bleed but what quality of life am I getting at the moment. I’m only 62 but feel 82 some days. Would love to hear some comments. I love this page and thank you for reading my post.”
