User posts to the study
I have been taking zetia for quite some time and have recently developed neuropathy. I take it once a day and always on an empty stomach. I did not equate the prickling feeling at first with this medication, but after googling it, I discovered a correlation between the two. Can anyone here ...
had to stop taking Zetia after 1 week due to severe stomach pain and numbness and tingling in fingers on both hands. The stomach pain went away but the numbness and tingling are still present, It has been over one month. Really concerned, Does anyone know when the tingling will go away
I've been on a generic Zetia for 3 months now and have lost 15 lbs.. I do need to lose about 30 lbs. total. Should I be concerned? I feel fine and really have no side effects, other than the weight loss.
