I had medication changed due to my arthritis and pain. I have not taken the Crestor in the last 2 weeks. I am having increased pain in my knees and shoulders, I am unable to sleep and I feel tired. I have been to the Dr. 3 times in two weeks. He is trying to resolve my other issues. I remembered I did not tell him that I had not been taking the Crestor. I have not been feeling like myself in 3 weeks.
Hi, yes you certainly can experience withdrawal symptoms if you suddenly stop taking the medication. The most common ones that people suffer with are: Muscle weakness, Fatigue, Hair loss and Weight gain. This could be the cause of your increased pain and tiredness. I would suggest speaking with your doctor about this to see what steps he advises you take...
