  • Crestor side effects (1 response)
    I'm a vegetarian all my life , very athletic, I work out a lot , I run. In the last year or two My cholesterol seems to go high, my primary Doctor knows that I go for the healthy stuff so he advice a couple of things. But unfortunately nothing woks so he put me on Crestor, it has been a really bad experience, my menstrual periods don't come normal anymore, or sometimes it takes two or three months to come back again. I have hot flashes day or night, and the last one is that I'm gaining weight. I'm not sure what to do, any pill will give you side effects, I never read side effects. I'm 100% percent this is not coincides is real an is happening to me.

  • Sciatic nerve dysfunction
    I had been taking Crestor for about 4 years. Suddenly, I had terrible pain from my Sciatic Nerve. I couldn't stand, sit, lay down, walk, sleep, etc. without experiencing this pain. This went on for 5 months of unending pain. I had MRI, X-rays, Novocain, etc., with several doctors looking into it. Nothing could be found. Finally after 5 months, my primary care doctor asked my to stop taking the Crestor. Within 2 weeks, the pain was completely gone. Careful investigation showed that my Sciatic Nerve was routed through the Piriformis muscle. The Crestor caused muscle toxicity on this muscle and it squeezed the Sciatic Nerve, causing the pain. I have done much research on this and have never seen a similar case. So I feel that I should report this to you. Thanks for your interest.

  • Cymbalta and pulmonary embolisms (2 responses)
    I started taking Cymbalta in August for pain. By September I was suffering from shortness of breath. Visited Doctors asking if Cymbalta could be the cause. Answer was no. By the end of September I was no longer taking Cymbalta but still suffering from shortness of breath. It was getting severe although only when I was up and moving. On Oct 10th I was admitted to the hospital. I had a myriad of tests on my heart such as stress test, echocardiogram,sonograms on my neck and legs. All were clear. Blood test indicated clots(I guess) and a cat scan was done. Both of my lungs were covered in clots. Cat scan done of my stomach,intestines etc. Doctors could find no where of origin for the clots. I am convinced it was the Cymbalta. I was taken off Celebrex when I left the hospital. I have since been taken off glimepiride,fish oil. I currently only take Lisinopril and Hydrocholorthiazide, metformin,crestor AND COUMADIN. I am providing this information as I feel it is important to others like me.

  • I have no symptoms of any disease. I feel fine with no restrictions. The latest blood test from my annual exam shows elevated red blood cells. The rest of the blood panel is good. I say the Crestor is causing the high count. I want to be informed before the doc starts tests. Thank you. Mike
