Well, after reading the English Daily Express today I am a little confused,I thought I was on a low dose of Statin at 10mg of Rosuvastatin, but it seems that this is classed as a high dose, and am wondering if I should ask it to be lowered to 5mg? I would like to stop altogether but there is this nagging doubt that I will be making a mistake. I have had all the side effects mentioned elsewhere, well most . Aches and pains in muscles and joints ,irritability, loss of libido etc, etc, but at the moment feel ok, I have also put on nearly 70 lbs although I stopped smoking as well as becoming less active.I do not eat junk and do not drink alcohol, but am finding it very hard to lose weight. It is 6 years since I had 2 mild heart atts. Was told I suffer from angina and had one stent inserted,I can walk 10 miles no problem, do physical jobs, etc and ,apart from the mild heart attacks, which were real enough, feel I have been misdiagnosed to some extent, my GP just says that I am lucky and to keep taking the pills, but should I?
