Re: Do statins cause loose stools ??
I am on 40mg Simvastatin daily and have been since February this year, but not for high cholesterol purposes.
I have taken two brands of generic simvastatin during this period, with both brands being manufactured here in the UK. Yes, I too had looser stools initially, and yes.......I still have looser stools today. I'm not concerned about this unless there are changes.
Look at it this way, better with loose/r stools than constipation, because at least we are avoiding the onset of Diverticultis or other colon complications.
