My 8yr olds aching legs

My 8 yr old has recently started taking Pravastatin 10mg having been diagnosed with FH. He complained last Sunday of having aching legs but has been fine since. I'm not sure whether to put this down to too much tree climbing and football or a side effect. Does anyone know if this side effect can come and go or if it is usually a constant issue? Thanks

  • I've not had problems with pravastatin yet but with another statin it came and went but that pain was usually very localised. Wait and see. I'm surprised an 8 year old is on a statin rather than a sequestrant but 10mg pravastatin is quite a low dose.
