Jakafi has increased my cholesterol levels off the charts and now my GP thinks I should be on statins. She recommended Crestor as an option and since I have never had this problem before, I gave it a try. I had a severe cytokinesis reaction and am now off of it. Does any one here take statins, and if so which ones? Have you had reactions to them to the point that you ended up in the hospital?
I had high cholest. And tried EVERY statin available. Even tried red yeast rice. They all caused serious muscle and bone pain! Finally tried Repatha, which causes nausea, but lowers LDL. YouTube has some great videos on cholesterol #s and statins. Highly recommended!
I take a statin and have for about 10 to 15 years.. no problems.. so sorry you had that experience..there are other statins besides Crestor maybe try one of the others.. Good luck.
I hope those of you who have medication problems can work them out. I know too many with problems with statins so I avoid them but do not have high numbersI was raised with a Dad who avoided drugs and he lived till 96 so I do believe many drugs do more harm than good. I believe a good diet and vitamins are better. I take advil for headaches but thats all right now..
My numbers elevate on statins and I get severe muscular pain. Can’t take any of them.
