FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments: PRAVACHOL

User Comments:


For High Cholesterol “Lowered my bad LDL from 180 to 95 in 6 months, on only 20 mg daily. Only side effect is my legs get sore when I walk distances that never bothered me before. However, with a little rest, I’m ok. Pravachol is MUCH better than Lipitor, which I threw away after a week due to leg and joint pain.”

For High Cholesterol “Within 2 weeks of being on 40mg of Pravachol, I began noticing muscle weakness in my shoulders, wrist and knees. I later discovered that these are possible side effects of this medication. I noticed remarkable improvements after stopping the medication.”
