I had to abandon the statins that I was prescribed about four days ago. I already get headaches and they were giving me migraines, especially during the night. I have a four day gap then get one. Even though I have stopped taking them I had a migraine in the early hours . It kept me awake for ages then when I got up this morning I had a bad headache. Has anyone else had this experience. ? I am so lucky I dont have to work as I would be off sick more than I would be there these days. I take amitryptyline to keep headaches at bay but they are not stopping these .
