I have just read a very interesting article due to be published in Wednesday's Daily Mail about statins and sleep. It appears the statin Simvastatin has been linked with causing both sleep disturbance and weight gain. I am on this statin and suffer from both these things. I would be interested in hearing whether anyone else, taking this statin, has either, or both, of these problems. My sleep and weight problems have been put down to meds I am taking for Parkinsons. Maybe this is not right?
