Cholesterol 7.7 so GP prescribed 40mcg of simvastatin to be taken nightly. Took first one Monday evening. On Wednesday had a funny dizzy spell, but didn't link it to new drugs. Thursday and Friday feeling a little spaced out and not wanting to do anything. Saturday - extremely spaced out and dizzy, pins and needles all over body, spent day in bed! Phoned nhs direct and was told to stop taking statins. Today, pins and needles going, but still quite dizzy and feeling detached from body, if that makes sense! Anyone else had this drug with similar results or have I picked up a bug and am blaming statins? No sickness, etc - just feel really weird.
