High Cholesterol board


Yes I have tried crestor, along with all the other statins. I have hypercholesterolemia (whew). After 8 days I was in the bed, and on the verge of developing rhabdomyolysis, which happens when the statins attack your muscles, which then release enzymes that shut down your kidneys. I cannot take any of the statins or fenofibrates (tricor, gemfibrozil). Yet when a new one comes out, I am always tempted to try them, but never again. I have peripheral neuropathy in my legs that was caused by tricor. Some people do fine on statins, but others don't. I am green with envy, lol. My lastest #'s were, total chol. = 339, triglycerides = 1073.......
