So my PCP asked about putting me on statins. Thank-you all for your help. I told her as long as they didn't work against my kidneys. She started me on Atorvastatin 10 mg per day. I've been taking it for about 10 days now but I don't know if I can handle it. I am sleepy all the time and my muscles hurt nonstop. Does anyone else have this and if so, does it stop or should I get off after talking to my doc? Are there other stations I should research? Thanks!
