Wondering if those of you who have started Praluent did so because you experienced muscle pain on statins. If so, have you had any muscle pain that may be associated with Praluent?
medq; There is not a lot of side effects listed because this one being one of the newer Cholesterol medications but this one is listed.((( muscle spasm with pain))) Which does not surprise me almost all the others due. but it was not that high it says 1 to 10% in the studies had this but not bad enough to have to stop. So you might just give your doctor a call, Maybe like with Ranger an adjustment in dose and diet you may get better results. Hope you get to feeling better.
medq; ARE you having problems with cramps pain etc still If they just changed you sometimes it takes a little time to adjust to the new one and so far I have been seeing nothing but good things about this newer statin. Which is very common as they improve them because of problems with some of the older ones AS I said before what it does list is very little when you compare it to the older ones on the market. Hope it is working out for you as well as a lot of the posters here.Chuck1957
yes. I stopped statins because they weren't working to lower my soaring LDLs and caused crippling muscle pain. I started Praluent to control my Familial Hypercholesterolemia with the hope of not having horrible muscle pain. After 9 months of injections, my LDLs are much lower, but I am having significant muscle aches and wonder if this miracle drug is worth the PAIN. I only agreed to take it because it wasn't supposed to cause muscle pain like the (useless) statins. SO, NOW WHAT? Discontinue Praluent & wait for a heart attack or stroke or continue to suffer horrific muscle pain? I joined a gym to get healthy, but am unbelievably sore after the lightest workout. HELP!!!
It's been about 6 months since I started Praluent and I haven't noticed any extra pain. I already have Fibromyalgia and arthritis in my back and was afraid of statins causing even more pain than I currently have. My LDL has gone down over 50 points and my triglycerides are almost normal. Hopefully it keeps working its magic and I don't have any problems.
