 4  Heart Stent/Borderline Cholesterol Disturbed sleep and minor leg/hip muscle pain that went away after 1 month. Overall, I'm happy with Crestor as I'm sensitive to a lot of meds and this one is very tolerable for me. I take the generic and my cardiologist told me to take it around bedtime. I fall asleep an hour after taking it. M 53 5 months

 4  High Cholesterol Severe pain in right hip. This has been overcome by experimentation with a reduced dosage. I am very obese. BMI 64-yes 64. T. 2 diabetes, High BPr. if untreated. Elevated chl. if untreated. I was prescribed Crestor and it worked well for 5 or more years @20mg/day. Then suddenly I started experiencing right side hip pain which slowly increased until I could not walk properly and it took large doses of paracetamol and about 2 hours out of bed each day before I could walk without discomfort. Hip X Rays showed a clear buildup of some material(unsure exactly what it was) on my hip. My doctor said I would need a hip replacement! I started doing my own study. I found some remarks about Crestor on an airline pilot's website. Comments suggested Crestor as being the cause of this unbearable pain. I decided to stop Crestor altogether for about a month and found that my hip pain was eliminated, but that my resting heart rate was going up and I could feel what I would describe as "angina". I started taking full dosage until I could feel the hip pain returning, and then modified my dosage so that I was having a total of about 4 full tablets per week. My angina went away, my blood tests were OK and about 3 years after beginning experimenting have settled on 6 full tablets per week with blood tests quite OK and at a level my NEW doctor is happy with. It is about "3.2" overall. I have not had any more X Rays. I have not needed them - or a hip replacement! I will keep on with Crestor at a reduced dose. M 59 10 years

 1  250 total cholesterol This drug needs to be taken off market..and lawsuits filed against big pharma. Doctors prescribe starins for liability reasons, to protect themselves. I lasted 1 month on this nightmarish drug. Severe burning eyes, blurry vision, dry mouth and burning mouth, facial numbness and pain, neck and back pain, severe bodily burning and tingling sensation, sore feet, fatigue, depression, insomnia, muscle twitching, leg pain, disabling headaches, brain fog, groin pain, numbness in legs and feet, digestive upset, severe flatulence, etc. Really? They actually poison people with this drug. I am in disbelief. The heck with high cholesterol, what a racket. I stopped. No more. I am fit 64 year old female, low bmi of 17, no smoking, little alcohol, and organic low fat diet. I hope this is not permanent damage. I have been off this poison for 2 weeks but still suffering. Please, anyone, let me know these symptoms go away and how long it takes. Take off market. F 64 30 days

 3  To lower triglycerides Aching legs, hips, upper back, shoulders, chest pain. I decided to research the drug on my own and discovered that it is very effective at lowering triglycerides at a low dose of 5mg. I tried that on my own and my triglycerides dropped 50% in 2 months with little to no leg, hip, shoulder or chest pain. M.D. didnt believe me until he saw results of blood test. I had made no change in food choices. Why take 30mg and suffer, when 5mg did the trick for me! See, M.D. s dont know everything! Still taking 5mg and M.D. is amazed! F 67 2 months

 1  High Cholestrol Extreme lack of energy. Could hardly get off the couch to do what was absolutely necessary to take care of myself. Muscle pain also. Within days of stopping this drug I had at least 50% more energy and less muscle pain. Who cares if I die of high cholesterol if living while taking this drug wasn't really worthwhile? Not me! Watch out for side effects. F 74 2 years

 1  High cholesterol Have 2 very bad knees, bone on bone, awaiting knee replacement surgery. When I could barely walk and was unable to sleep at night due to muscle pain, I initially attributed it to my failing knees. Now I know better. Stopped taking crestor 6 months ago, knees are still bad, but muscle pain has stopped and I just feel better. Never again! Poison! F 62 2 years
