I can't do anything physical without running out of breath
I'm no expert, but I was prescribed 2 new drugs -- Singulair for allergies and Simvastatin. Like you 20 mg once a day. I experienced shortness of breath -- which I have never had before -- within a few days of starting these meds.
After I stopped taking both, the shortness of breath went away. I think it was the statin which caused the problem.
