  • From this study (12 months ago):

  • I started out on 10 mg at night for IBS and to get more restful sleep. That was January 2012. Continued to take 10 mg nightly. Later in the year around October, I increased to 25 mg because the IBS didn't seem a lot better. (IBS, diarrhea)From October 2012 until now May 2013 I have gained 30 pounds. My doctor ask me why I was gaining weight. I eat the same as before, nothing has changed. Little did I know. I had NEVER read the side effects of this medicine. I was just happy to be able to eat without running to the bathroom. I have noticed in the last few months, a rapid heartbeat. So much so that it feels like the entire bed is shaking.

  • Nightmares occurred when I was on simvastin after just a few weeks and stopped when I stopped the simvastin. I have been on crestor for three months but in the last week have developed nightmares every night which I didn't have before. I dream but these are scary, sometimes violent nightmares. I am going to go off the medicine Crestor and see if they stop. My doctor does not think statins cause nightmares.
