Statins not the wonder drug they claim
I have been on statins for years as I had high-ish cholesterol. I have lived with the muscle cramps etc. These have become worse lately. The doctor gave me naproxene for the pain (I looked it up and essentially this is feminax). I couldn't sleep at all, and flipped into a suicidal mood, feeling that I couldn't bear these pains any longer. My mood was not entirely rational. The doctor has today taken me off simvastatin, saying that the drug leeches into the brain, and that I need to detox before trying one of the newer statins that don't have this effect.
Just be aware that when you feel well, and start taking a preventive wonder drug, there is a lot of profit for someone - ask yourself why take a drug on doctor's advice, when you don't need to? And look up "iatrogenic disease" in a medical dictionary - disease caused by medical intervention.
