“I put off going on a statin for years. 5mg Rosuvastatin targeted only my very high LDL. 239 down to 108. No side effects. Very relieved it worked since years of strict diet and exercise did not.”

Crestor (rosuvastatin): “Taking Crestor 20mgs daily. After using this for six months and not seeing good results (cholesterol levels still elevated). I find that I am experiencing joint pains and hair loss. This is my second try on this medication, I was on 10 mg before. I am going to try asking to go back on Lipitor.”

“I have used this drug rosuvastatin for many years, with minimal side effects. Last year I used this drug from this manufacturer and it made me very nauseous. I stopped it a few times and tried is again & again, but with same result. I switched to another manufacturer and was fine. I guess they use some kind of ingredient that isn't right”

Crestor (rosuvastatin): “Crestor worked wonderfully in reducing my cholesterol. It worked quickly and I was very happy with my lab results. Unfortunately, I had to stop taking Crestor because I developed severe muscle pain and aching in my legs, as I did with several of the other statin drugs.”

Crestor (rosuvastatin): “I went from Zocor, which I had been taking for 10 years. When I started taking Crestor my cholesterol went from 240 to 147 in 3 weeks and has stayed there. My triglycerides went from 340 to 135. I take a 10 milligram a day.”

Crestor (rosuvastatin): “Lovastatin didn't work for me. I changed to Crestor and result was a miracle for me (from 275 to 187), that's what I needed for a long time.”
