I was given Crestor to lower cholesterol. I took a pill each evening for 2.5 weeks.
Then, I stopped taking it, because the side effects are unbearable.
It has been 2 months since I stopped taking Crestor, yet I still suffer from extreme fatigue, horrible muscle weakness, and an “empty” feeling in my stomach.
Taking Crestor upon the advice of my doctor was the single worst decision I’ve ever made. Basically, I’ve been unable to function for the last 2.5 months. I’ve been unable to work. I’ve been unable to do ANYTHING. I’m so tired all the time, no matter how much sleep I get each night. Crestor is a terrible “medicine” — the side effects are horrible, unbearable, and prolonged.
Never take Crestor.
