Readers' alert: drug side-effects

MagazineOctober 2005 (Vol. 16 Issue 7)Readers' alert: drug side-effects

I was on simvastatin for 15 months and suffered incredible pain as a result

I was on simvastatin for 15 months and suffered incredible pain as a result. When I told my doctor, she put me on atorvastatin, which I took for five months. This made absolutely no difference, and the pain got so bad, I had to stop taking statins altogether. I consulted a doctor at my local hospital and he said to take a break from the medication for six months, then try again. However, I am not sure if I want to go through all that again. - D.F.
