I seem to have pain lifting my arms, especially right. It feels very sore, but not as much pain as when on Crestor. Seems then to have worse muscle aches. I guess I can deal with this as opposed to other statins taken. Also experience weakness in legs but this may be due to age and not enough exercise. I am afraid Covid has kept me inside more than I would have liked. I do get labs done about every 6 months.
Taking pravastatin for about a year. 40 mg until May 2021. Now on 80 mg.

I took pravastatin to find out it wasn't working well and my fibromyalgia wasn't getting better. I changed medical systems and found out I had measurable muscle damage from it. My new Dr switched to Zetia. I had a normal lipid panel for the first time after one year! No worries about making fibromyalgia worse. You could check with your Dr and see if Zetia helps
