i have been taking pravastatin for about 6 weeks, 10 mgs. Dr recently upped dosage to 20 mgs. once daily. I have been getting terrible outbreaks ofsweating, sometimes followed by chills. am going to call DR. tomorrow.Decided to look up side effects and hoped I could get some answers here also. thank you
As you might have already seen in the side effects, excessive sweating is not a known side effect of pravastatin, but having chills is probably not good. I would definitely suggest that you speak to your doctor tomorrow.
