Hi, I am new to this. Was investigating the effects of Crestor and read some of your comments. Was totally surprised and shocked that most of the side effects are like symptoms that I have have been going to my DR. about for the last 5 yrs. Not once during my visits to hospital or specialists did anyone suggest or mention the fact that my being on Crestor could be causing all my problems. I was put on these about 6 yrs ago before I was discharged from ICU. I took them ever since and was not aware of side effects. I have never missed a dose in 6yrs, but ran out 2 days ago and have to get the prescription refilled by my DR. That is how I found this site, just wondering if I could miss a few days. I will add a post later to fill you in on the medical problems I have had this past 6 yrs. I am really wondering now!! Have to make a decision.
