I have been on Rosuvastatin for 2 1/2 months. I have gained 5 kilos and a bloated looking stomach along with aching in my knees and ankles. I have just turned 50 and my wife teases that it is my middle age spread, but I am a regular gym goer and although I don't sport a 6 pack, my stomach has always been in pretty good shape. Has anyone else experienced the bloating stomach? I wonder whether it is water retention as certainly my diet and eating habits haven't changed.
