“I also started off on Lipitor after a stroke but had very painful muscles. Switched to Crestor and after just over a year, the carotid blockage of 57-60% that I had to begin with reduced to unmeasurable levels.”

“Rosuvastatin has a lot of side effects that are serious. Doctors will have to balance ordering this medication based upon what the sales reps tell them and the studies show as to the effects on their patients and that.It may be a tough decision. Rosuvastatin worked well for some but has significant side effects that appear to be dangerous, could cause accidents driving with blurred vision, patient does if they are having indigestion or angina it is concerning. Hearing too many side effects here and a lot of money for a not-so-safe drug? Maybe any money is too much money for a not so safe drug? Rosuvastatin side effects are difficulty in moving, leg pain, indigestion (heartburn) mimicing angina, blurred vision (also while driving on the highway!) pounding heartbeat, fast heart beat, trouble breathing, joint pain.”
