  • From this study (1 month ago):

  • I has constant severe upper abdominal pain after taking Atorvastatin for 6 months, and had my gallbladder removed. The abdominal pain still comes and goes, not as severe as before and it has been 6 months since the gallbladder removal.
    The muscle pain started just before the abdominal pain (about 3 months after starting Atorvastatin). It started in my forearms and I thought it was from typing all day. Over the past year it has slowly spread up my arms, into my shoulders and into my lower back. I also get leg and foot cramps occassionally.

  • With all these meds is there a chance the naproxen will cause kidney rejection. Or cause any of the other meds not work properly?
