From this study (1 day ago):
Began experiencing a wavering voice in the fall of 2012 after Lipitor reformulated the 10mg pills (made them much smaller). On July 2nd of 2013 I stopped taking Liptor and my voice improved within a couple of days. Started Crestor July 29th and voice started getting bad August 16th and I began experiencing back, neck, and leg muscle aches. Stopped taking Crestor September 3rd. By September 7th no muscle pain. Tried Crestor every other day Sept 11th. Ears would ring every other day. Leg, back & neck pain returned. Stopped Crestor for good Sept 23rd. Started Pravastatin Oct 11th. Started experiencing muscle aches on the 18th. Voice wavering increasingly got worse. Stopped Pravastatin as an experiment on April 9th. Saw a voice specialist April 17th. Diagnosed with Spasmodic dysphonia. By April 19th voice much better. Specialist is not aware of any corelation(sp?)but my experience seems to show otherwise.
