I have been on 20mg of Crestor for almost 2 years after having four stents for clogged arteries. Although I do not have any other symptoms I am feeling depressed and just want to be alone. Total cholesterol very good but doctor still wants me on it. Not sure if it is causing me to feel depressed but am afraid to stop it. I am 63 years old.
My Occipital Nerve ruptured last year in February and after all of the MRI's and pills it seems that my Mirena ran out too soon and caused the problem.

I've now had 2 nerve blocks but still have issues each month. Anyone else?
