Customer Question
I have been having...

I have been having lots of muscle pain in my legs especially at night.,My doctor has recently changed my station from prevastatin to Crestor. But he started me off on a pretty high dosage . My cholesterol went way down but I started having pretty bad muscle pain in my legs especially at night. He then started giving me Coq10 (400mg ) a day thinking that was what the pain was from. I Ave not noticed any difference in the pain. He also told me to stop the Crestor for a month. When should I start noticing a difference in the pain?

Doctor's Assistant: What medications do you take daily? Are you allergic to any medications?

Not allergic.? Take an antidepressant and Xanax as needed. Supplements if Vitamin C and an eye vitamin for Macular Degeneeation and vitamin D

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I sometimes get reflux from certain foods and have a sire thrust from early spring until mid summer.

It may take almost 7-10 days for the pain to gradually show improvement and effect of Crestor to wane off.
