Hi, I started statins the last 6mos. Lipitor10mg=DEPRESSION horrible by 11 days. Then dr is trying pravastatin 10mg- 1 mo. For @ 2 mos 40mg/day. Never had high
chlorestrol and I am 65. I did loose weight 15lbs-some exercise before taking any statin to avoid them. Higher numbers! Last Monday had 1st esophageal spasm!! Came on suddenly and I thought I was having a heart attack?? Stomach pains and diarreah the night before and nausea. Felt like a stomach flu. Today is day 8 and I have had a long week of: Fatigue, weakness, Nausea, headache, chills-hot sensation and sleepy-tired. I changed to the BRAT diet, drinking water and electrolytes drinks. I am having a long acting stomach bug or? Have been very sad, no energy, etc and see very little to no improvement... Since on 40mg, very little exercise just do not feel like it & this is not me!
