76 year old female,excellent health until I had an episode with trip to emergency room for high blood pressure and high cholestrol. In the ER they sent me home with 325 mg aspirin a day and 40mg. Lipitor. Went to my doctor 2 weeks later he said stay on both meds. About 2 months into taking thes my legs were aching at night about 5 hours after taking the Lipitor at bed time. I called my doctor and he said add CoQ 10, until I saw him in 6 weeks. At the office visit I explained the leg aches and weakness again,he said ok I will switch you to 10 mg Crestor, but he called late that afternoon that my enzymes were elevated and he wanted me to have an ultra sound. I told him stopping the Lipitor I felt like a new person,no aches and legs regained strength. I am asking him to let me come back in a month for new blood tests and no ultra sound and more tests till we see if stopping Lipitor also reduces the elevated enzymes.
Hi! I am going absolutely crazy because I have not had a period since beginning wellbutrin 6 weeks ago and no one seems to believe it is related to the meds!! I am 32 years old, 99.9% sure I am not pregnant and since starting wellbutritn have been feeling much happier, however 10 days ago my dose had been increased to 300 mg (from 150 mg) and I have been nauseous ever since. Along with the nausea, I have been experiencing PMS-like symptoms for over a week (bloating, some cramps here and there, swollen breasts). I also gained about 3-4 lbs in the last 10 days (normal weight around 115-116, currently bouncing between 119-120 lbs); I am 5'5 so this weight is fine for my body it just feels very umm... fluffy and swollen, not natural like when I have fluctuated at other times in my life.
Hi everyone. I am on SSD & have medicare & I am in the "donut hole". I have been on Crestor & Zetia for years with no problems. Because of the donut hole, I can no longer pay for my statins. My doc switched me to Lipitor 80mg about 2 months ago. I am nauseated every day sionce last week. I take the Lipitor at night & then even after taking an antacid & lying up on 3 pillows I am still nauseated. I also feel hungry but when I go to eat, I fill up so quickly. Anyone have this happen to them? I think I'm going to skip it for a night or 2 to see what happens. I have CHF, diabetes, kidney disease, high blood pressure & cholesterol (controlled) & have had a triple bypass after a heart attack in 1997. Thanks for your opinions.
I am experiencing fatigue, muscle cramps, and muscle and joint pain. I have read that others have experienced the same as a result of taking these medications together. Anybody else have a similar experience?
