User Comments:


For High Cholesterol: “I’ve lost 25lbs. in the past 6 months. The weekend after Thanksgiving I got a strange pain in my stomach and threw up, felt sick for the next 2 days so I thought I had the flu. I never really did get my appetite back. The day after Christmas the same pain came back, which made me throw up 10 times worse. I am now due for my physical, but that is why I was asking, since I lost weight, would 20mg lovastatin be making me sick?”

For High Cholesterol: “Two pills almost killed me. Left me bedridden for a week. I couldn’t even lift my arm to call 911.After 5 days, managed to call my doctor. They dismissed my symptoms.I hadn’t drank or urinated for days. When I finally did, my pee was Brown (this stuff destroyed your muscles).I will NEVER take another statin as long as I live.”
