I was taking Atorvastatin 40 mg every other day for about 1.5 years. My TC and LDL cholesterol was still high, so my GP said to take it every day. I started feeling fatigued, foggy, forgetful, and a had squeeze feeling in my feet and toes, like I was wearing socks. The right leg was worse than the left. After a month and a half, I stopped the atorvastatin and made an appointment with my cardiologist. He said the side effects were related to the atorvastatin and to stay off them for a total of 2 months. At that time I should start rosuvastatin 10 mg every other day. I’ve now been off statins for 2 months. The squeezing feeling in my feet and forgetfulness remain, so I’m hesitant to start the rosuvastatin. My high TC and LDL cholesterol is familial. I power walk 3 miles everyday and do other exercises daily for 30 minutes. My weight is normal. I’m 68. I’m vegetarian and don’t drink alcohol. When can I expect the last of the side effects to subside?
