... to go away over time or is it always going to be there? are there other options available?
there are a number of drugs in this class of Antilipemics. Most target a reduction in total cholesterol and in LDL levels. Some can specifically help to reduce triglycerides. They are always an adjunct to proper diet. There are other choices you may want to try, none without side effects.Crestor comes in 5 to 40mg tabs. Your dose is common. There are many side effects, but drug guides don't specifically mention impotence... It can cause pelvic pain, back pain,arthritis,neck aches, nerve inflammation,rashes, stomach and bowel issues,edema, ^ BP, anxiety, headache,resp. sleep issues, fatigue etc.Pelvic pain can radiate to the testicular area. Maybe, it is from another drug or another source.Just because i have never had a patient state this problem doesn't mean it doesn't exist.look under Antilipemics in a drug guide in the library. Web sites are helpful, but not always complete, esp. if they are wanting you to buy something. Blood pressure issues can lead to impotence, as can anti-depressants.I hope you get this squared away soon. Take care!
