I have had joint pain which began shortly after beginning to tske pravastatin. This began over one year ago and I have been going to a pain clinic since it started. No tests (and there have been many) indicate any reason for the pain.
Can I just stop taking a statin drug or do I have to slowly reduce the dosage?
