I have been on of 20mg Crestor for three months and I itch all over my body, especially at night. I went off it for a week but still itch everywhere. How long does one have to be off crestor to see if this is what makes them itch all over. I never had this before. Help!!!. I am going whako itching. My family doctor put me on steroids for a week and the itching stopped but once I stopped the steroids the itching came right back.
