Comments for this study:
Donna (4 years ago):
My husband was taking Crestor and he stopped it after 3 months because of the serious side effects. While on Crestor he showed many of the symptoms of Dementia. initially he became angry at everyone, after a couple of weeks he was becoming unable to do ordinary day to day tasks. he is an engineer and could not read a tape measure. we would look for keys, reading glasses, sunglasses etc. He would have no recollection of where he had put them. The list goes on. He went to the doctor who told him it was not side effects of Crestor. He kept taking it and was getting worse until we went away for a week and forgot to pack them, as it was only for a week we decided it wouldn't hurt to miss them. During that week I started getting my husband back, he was able to remember things, communicate with people, read a tape measure etc. When we came back we decided to trial him back at work and not taking Crestor incase it was stress related. He was fine, infact working life was so much easier now he was not taking Crestor. he has now been off Crestor for over 3 months and he has not experienced any of the dementia like problems he did while taking it. I would warn anyone against taking it and suggest trying Zimstat or similar as they do not produce the side effects that Crestor does.
