I stopped Crestor for 33 days. my lipids were: [br>TC 139 [br>HDL 35 [br>TRG 126 [br>LDL/HDL 2.3 [br>GLU 88 [br>[br>Now they are: [br>TC 211 [br>HDL 29 [br>TRG 164 [br>LDL/HDL 5 [br>GLU 96 [br>[br>I did not relax my strict Mediterrean diet nor hard daily exercise. Now I take the side of statins in the on-going controversy on whether they do any good or not. I'm 84, one stent RCA, May 2010 [br>(I dropped Crestor to see if i twas the cause of my two-year bout of night sweats. I still have them.)View Thread
i'm 83 too. One stent 2 years ago and apparently sucessful. I have long wanted to throw drugs away but cannot tell which are giving me the willies. I stopped statin etc five days ago and keep only cardvedilol. My test too are good. But I am sick and weary and anxiety-gripped a coulpe hours a day, the rest tired listless and suddeny jump on my bike for 5kms with no ill effects whatever. This clear the willies now and them . if not i take .50 Xanax whichnornally relieves me.Are you free of this anxiety nuisance - GAD, General Anxiewty disorder?. Even so please keep us informed of your bold anti-drug regime.View Thread
thank you Bobby. My latest test looks normal - total C 140, HDL 36.trg 114, ldl 104. I'd like to see the HDL up a bit. I take 10 crestor alternate day - a low dose.. But every day I get an anxiety ache moving up and down the midriff from gut to diafragm which will nornally clear with .25 alprazolam (Xanax). I assume from this my stomach problem is GAD, not crestor.??View Thread
what was the dose you were taking? I take Crestor 10mg alternate days. Also carvedilol and aspirin. I don't know which causes my side effects. I have one stent RCA two years ago. Why are you taking Crestor? Heart? Losing weight? If it's this last it's quite daft to take it.View Thread
'Statins also reduces inflammation and helps stabilize plaque in the arteries?
cardiologists say this too. Who does not mention it at all are the big pharmas who make statins - check it out on the information sheet in the box of tablets or on their websites. If it does this why don't they claim it and broadcast it?.View Thread
