I I have been taking lovastatin for longer than a year I have begun to have cramps in my legs and muscle aches as though I have the flu should side effects start after you have been taking the medicine for more than one year I take one 40 milligram pill each day?
That can happen, yes. There are hormonal changes in your body all the time and that causes new side effects. You should really talk to your doctor though because it sounds uncomfortable and you don't want to have to deal with leg cramps if you don't have to. Those hurt. I would know, I've had a lot of them. You probably don't have to deal with that. Muscle aches aren't fun either so maybe you can work something out that would work better for you.
