From this study (3 years ago):
Karen on Jun, 5, 2011:
On Crestor (and Micardis, Lexapro,Epilim) - for few months. Before Epilim and Micardis, was on Crestor and noted exhaustion,muscle pain(too painful to get on floor and almost impossible to get up each and every time - had to mentally scream atmyself to manage to arise);also months of awful fasciitis. Some minor alleviation but feet feel swollen to bursting; bones or other soft tissues very painful; hobbling for months; cant exercise much;great loss of motivation; struggling to keep on feet. A week ago jumped off Epilim and Lexapro. Distressed enough to leap of Crestor and Micardis now. Heart palpitations/irregular beats increasing in occurrence.
