Which statin has the least side effects?
My husband is having a problem with extreme fatigue, muscle pain, and severe tinnitus since starting a statin, rosuvastatin, a couple of weeks ago. I would like to know if anyone is taking something that comes with less side effects. These side effects are not at a tolerable level for him with this med. Are there better ways, more tolerable meds, to lower the "bad" cholesterol levels, the LDL levels, that is? (the ones that cause plaque in the arteries)
If he continues to take it, will the side effects subside soon? -or-
Will the side effects go away when he stops taking it? I read some reviews where people claimed that their side effects continued after stopping the med.
Anyone have anything helpful to contribute in the way of suggestions here?
Thank you in advance!
