I received a phone call from my GP about annual blood test results for thyroid levels, during the conversation she told me my cholesterol reading was above 5 and would I consider taking a statin. I've heard so many different tales from friends and acquaintances how some can't take them due mostly to muscle aches and pains and some take them with no side effects whatsoever.
Anyway she said perhaps try them for a while see how it goes, she suggested starting by taking them only three times a week at first. I've now received a prescription for Rosuvastin 10mg tablets. Has anyone had experience of taking statins since being diagnosed with osteoporosis , any particular side effects . I've got enough pain to deal with from my fractures and I'm worried about causing additional aches and pains with Statins. Having said that I'll probably give them a trial with the three times a week but I'm interested to hear views of others.
