Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (1 year ago):

  • After 30 years of PVCs (irregular heart beats, tachycardia to bradycardia), I was put on 100 mg of Amiodarone. Almost a year later, I have no arrhythmia, but I have typical whorls on my cornea, mild wooziness, graying skin, chest pressure (no pain), and trouble concentrating. I am wearing Bi-pap for both types of sleep apnea (somewhat controlled), with tachycardia waking me up, presumably after apnea event. I am checked regularly by chest X-ray, pulmonary test, and blood test for thyroid involvement. I take 1 baby aspirin and 1 multi-vitamin, daily. I am hoping there is another drug for PVCs with fewer side effects. I am a male, 77 years old, in good shape, physically, with few ailments, otherwise.

  • From this study (4 years ago):

  • Doctor changed Pravastatin to Crestor and my neuropathy symptoms increased dramatically, so I stopped all statins for 9 months. I have recently started Pravastatin again because my cholesterol levels are the worst they have ever been. Symptoms seem to be getting worse again.

    Have had chronic fatigue ever since I started on HIV meds. I seem to be one of the 25% who seem to have this unfortunate reaction to taking them.
