 1  Slightly raised cholesterol 5.4 1st tablet I took, got a giddy spell, thereafter, horrendous joint pain and muscles so weak unable to lift a cup. Had to lift with 2 hands. Off them almost 3 weeks and am still in agony with my hands, weakness, pain, also stressed out. Don't give a dam am not taking them again. Want to enjoy the rest of my life pain free. My LDL was slight raised also at 3.45 but this is not extreme. Have had too many friends that have had adverse reactions to same. One had to have an MRI brain scan her headaches were so bad, as soon as she stopped taking them, headaches vanished. F 73 10 days

 5  Elevated LDL None Started with 10mg, which lowered LDL to about 1/3 of recommended. After initial 6 months, lowered dose to 5mg. A 6 month blood test indicated very low LDL, so lowered dose to 2.5mg for the next two years. Tests were still good so I lowered the dose to 1.25mg, which keeps me in desired cholesterol range. Split a 5mg in 4 parts, taken before bed. M 73 10 years

 1  High cholesterol Nausea. Muscle pain. Shaking. Nervousness. Scary dreams. Raised blood pressure Was put on 5mg once per day. This caused severe symptoms noted in side effects. I did some research and saw Crestor has long half life of about 19 hours and many people take it every other day or 3 time per week. I tried every other day. Still had same symptoms. Tried cutting pills in half to 2.5 mg and taking every 3rd day. The muscle pains and nausea stopped a day after taking this lower dosage, but had severe persistent shaking and felt like I was going to have heart attack. At next doctor's appointment I had quite elevated blood pressure. Crestor was discontinued. I found this to be a horrible drug. I hope this shaking will stop and is not permanent F 64 1 weeks

 5  cholesterol Take with a meal. Taken at bedtime disrupted my sleep by waking up feeling sick. When the doctor prescribed 10 mg, I started taking 5mg. Next blood test showed great results so I started taking 2.5mg. Still great results but with no side effects from all that extra drug I didn't need. Then I tell the doctor what dose is working for me and we go from there. M 75 10 years

 1  Lower my cholesterol After 2 days I experienced an acute onset of dizziness and almost fainted. This happened on two separate occasions. I then took 10mg daily for 3 days. On the third day I got the dizziness, headache and ended up collapsing and taken to hospital. I only ever had this happen after taking crestor. I have not had this experience again as I take krill oil instead of crestor. F 46 3 days

I also had jaw pain and severe knee pain.I took this poison for 21 months before the side effects hit me. The doctor convinced me that it was a small dose and as I was 60 and in good health it would be beneficial.I was a very active woman.I swam daily ,long beach walks daily and bike rides.I can do none of that now.My life has changed dramatically.My doctor dismissed my symptoms and offered no support.My husband has been my carer.
