I have been taking lipitor for about three months. About three weeks ago, I noticed that I was beginning to have pain in the upper thigh area. I know that I have arthritis, but it has not been in that area before. The pain comes and goes. However, I find that even doing simple floor exercises makes the upper thigh area very painful. There are times when I find it very difficult to walk.
I have been very, very concerned about this. I am 71 years of age and have always been pretty active.
My doctor is out of town for this week. However, his partner told me that it was ok to stop taking lipitor until next week when I see my regular doctor.

I still have some of the pain. So I am wondering if anyone has had this problem and if the pain stays after discontinuing the drug.

Thank you very much,

Sorry to hear about your leg pain, I was on Lipitor for about 4 years and developed pain in my ankles. I complained of this to my doctors. I was told to exercise more. I did and somehow tore my achilles tendon and also developed tendonitis on the other foot. I continued to exercise but it only got worse. I also tore my mincus on my left knee and was operated on and then tore my gastoc muscle on my right calf. I finally traced it to Lipitor. Since then I have tried all different statin with similiar results I also tried my over the counter preparations with similiar outcomes. To answer your question. Yes I feel lipitor causes muscle pain. Hope your luckier tham me. I just had my labs done and I guess the doc doesnt like the #'s cause he called and wants to talk to me. I wonder what he is going to do about it. Guess I'll find out monday. Good luck to you. by the way my pain did leave after I stopped the meds.
Thank you for the instant reply! I was impressed!
You have really been down a hard old road. I am really sorry to hear that. I pray that the numbers won't be so bad. I think that my high numbers are inherited, and it is difficult to control them. I really do not eat that much---I don't think!
Best of luck and may God bless you!

If it is the drug that is causing it, even being off it will not make the pain go away right away. I took Lipitor for 3 1/2 months and most of my problems were GI, but I also started with a few aches and pains. I stopped for a few months, and the aches and pains eased up, but the GI problems took almost another 4 months for my GI guy to get under control. About 3 months after I started to feel pretty darn good, they decided to put me on Baycol...OH BOY, those pills really did a number on me. Not only did I have the aches and pains, but I was totally fatiqued, and trying to go up a flight of stairs was a nightmare. After 3 months of that I tossed them and told my dr. NO more meds. for me. At that time I was 58, but felt like 98. It took a few months of being off the pills, but I did start to feel alot better. Some folks take those drugs and do fine, then others just can't handle them. See how U feel after being off of them for awhile, and if the pains and aches go away, then U know U may not beable to take them, or perhaps another drug may not bother U, it is mostly a trial and error thing. For now, I just try to do the best I can with diet and exercise, some tests are good, others are not so good, but I'm trying.

Best of luck..... :wave:
Oh yeah, Lipitor is your problem. I have been off it since 2000 after tracing my Neuropathy in both feet and muscle cramps in my legs. The pain has never left me and I spend a lot of time at PT. I rely on COQ10 which can be purchased at Walmart, etc. for the muscle spasms that used to get me out of bed at night. That part has gotten better but the pain in my feet has not. Pins and needles that require a pain med in order to sleep. Had ever test imaginable but shows nothing. It is a sneaky DRUG.

My Cholesterol has been over 300 for 20 years except the 2 years I took that poison. My doctor was really angy at me for refusing anymore STATINS. Recently she ask me to HUMOR her and take a stress test as she was worried about me. I PASSED with flying colors. I am 64 and rarely do they see such clarity she said. SO I personally think that test should be mandatory before putting anyone on statins. She said she would stop worrying now. I have never worried and I told it must be the COQ10 that I take daily. She did not comment but I hope she remembers this everytime someone complains about statins.

I know not one person and I know many as I live in an active retirement community in Florida who has not had pain from them and quit them. I regret the day I ever put the first in my mouth. Within 4 months I could hardly walk and still have problems. No more tennis and long walks for this gal. I would love to see them PAY big time for all the pain and suffering they have caused so many.

Songleader,

Yes, I had muscle aches and profound weakness from Lipitor... It started when my doctor combined it with Tricor.

For me it took over a year to really feel better.

My recommendation would be

a) start taking CoQ10 (100mg/day)
b) stop the Lipitor for a month and see if the pain subsides

If you do stay on statins, it is important to take CoQ10 with it - statins deplete the muscles of this important enzyme, and this may be the cause for the muscular problems many statin users develope.

:cool:
hi folks. Somehow I feel better that I'm not alone in my problem with statins. I was on Crestor for several months also and was very tired and had severe leg cramps. I stopped that on my own. My mds nurse was on it and after one week felt so weak she couldnt walk up and down the hallway of my mds office so she stopped and didnt even tell the md that she did. My md said it couldnt be the crestor since he takes it and he didnt experience any problems. He gave up on me and sent me to the cardiologist who put me on pravochol. I watched my legs carefully no pain. Then I developed what I thought was pain in my rt breast. I went to my gynocologist and c/o the breast pain and he said it was not in my breast but in my chest wall. I had costacondritis (inflamation of the chest wall). I stopped the pravachol and the pain eventually went away. The doc put me on niaspam. Boy did I get hot flashes. Supposed to take that with asa. Since I'm allergic to asa I took it alone. no good. I spoke to another cardiologist and he recomended tonic water for the leg cramps , went out and bought it, ugh I dont know which is worse the cramps of tonic water. Sorry just blabbering on. Maybe someone out there knows of something to help. Seeing my md on monday. Dont know what else will work? Any ideas?
Hi i have same problem as you guys. What exactly is COQ10 ? thanks
Coenzyme Q10 also called ubiquinone, which means "occuring everywhere" plays and important role in the manufacture of ATP, the fuel that runs cellular processes. Through it is present in every cell in your body, it is especially concentrated in the very active cells of your heart. Depriving the heart of CoQ10 is like removing a spark plug from your engine-it won't work.

Statins block enzyme pathways involved in the production of cholesterol, thereby lowering cholesterol levels. The same enzymes that are involved in the production of cholesterol are also required for the production of the essential CoQ10. Lower cholesterol levels in statin users are accompanied by reduced levels of CoQ10.

Merck knew that statins deplete CoQ10 and knew that it could contribute to heart disease. In 1990, this drug company sought and received a patent for Me****r and other statins formulated with up to 1,000 mg of coenzyme Q10 , however they have not brought this combination to market, nor has this company educated physicians on the importance of supplementing CoQ10 to offset the dangers of these drugs to the heart.

Just go to search and you can find out a lot about this. Without it I wake up with leg cramps and have to jump out of bed.
Songleader,

I had achey thighs the first two weeks I took Lipitor. The ache disappeared and never recurred and I've taken Lipitor for around 6 years.

Something like 50 - 100 mg. CoQ-10 might be a good idea but it's not at all clear why any chemical process affecting ATP useage would cause pain; fatigue yes, but why pain? Unfortunately CoQ-10 is one of the pricier supplements.
I buy mine when it is buy one get one free at Walgreens or else I get it at Walmart. Doesn't seem to make a difference where I buy it. I sometimes get it at Puritan Pride who have great sales.

I have been off for 5 years after taking it for over 2 years and not knowing what was causing all that pain. The Neuropathy that I am left with is the only thing that hurts so much now with the muscle cramps under control.

I feel for U with the PN, as my husband has it, and it is really not a fun thing to have. His is spreading to his hands now, and he has very little feeling in his feet. Unfortuneately there isn't a darn thing they can do for it except give him some meds., especially to let him try and get some sleep. Many nights he is up and down till the wee hrs. of the morning. He has been off the statins for 5 yrs. too, but took them for 7. Wish I knew then what I know now, neither of us would have ever touched them. I know there are some folks who have no problems, but they are in my opinon, the minority.
Oh how many nights I have spent at my computer because sleep won't come and this is after taking my meds. Depression creeps in sometime because I used to walk 2 miles several nights a week and played tennis a few times. This is why we live in an active retirement community and now I can't do either.

I have family members and friends that are in our boat. Some who thought they were immune to side effects learned that they weren't. It just took longer for some. If I had the money that I and the insurance has spent since 1998 trying to find what was wrong and then how to treat it, I could take a trip around the world.

I have been going to PT since April and using the Anodyne. It took several months but I am getting some feeling, nothing to jump up and cheer about yet but I can feel where he is touching my feet. I can also feel the ground when walking. Before they felt like I was walking on clubs. He says it takes a long time for the nerves to heal. He agrees with me on these statins. Seeing lots of patients complaining.

Good Luck to each of you in your search for some answers. Lyrica is the new med I am on now that just came out for Neuropathy that is not off label like Neurontin. Only been on it 10 days and was the first to have it filled at my pharmacy so will have to wait and see I guess. Pain specialist gave it to me.
well my # are in 261 chol, hdl 35, ldl 155, and trig 356, this didnt sit well with my doc so he suggusted lescol. I'm starting off slow 1 20 mg tab every other day for one week and then daily. I'm not happy about it but I have to get better #'s. I exercise eat right but no luck. I guess it genetic. any suggestions? I'm thinking of coq10. I took flaxseed oil and got diarrhea.
Tennis,

I wish you all the luck in the world. Thanks for responding.

Be patient--easier said than done, right?

God bless you!

People over 70 should not be on statin medications. In fact there are very few people that "might " should be. The Statin Study has reviewed all of the cholesterol lowering tests and found that lowereing cholesterol in women will not reduce overall mortality. In fact in people over 70 increased cholesterol is associated with a longer lifespan. My Mother was on Zocor and then Lipitor. It is too late for her. She is now in a wheelchair, and will be for the rest of her life because of cholesterol lowering. It is now thought at the Statin Study that the side effects are not drug related, but related to the actual lowering of cholesterol. In my mother's case, it was the Zetia and Welchol, that finally put her in a wheelchair. For some of you that do not have permanent damage...it might take 6 months to a year to improve from the damage; however, others of you might be permanently disabled.
finrus, I see you have done your research also. I wish more would do this. What continue to amaze me is that people still do not read the small print that runs across the tv screen and on the inserts that plainly state, "Statins have not been proven to prevent heart attacks" and yet these doctors have folks running scared that they will die from a heart attack if they dont take it.

Yeah, that's certainly true. Propaganda is the pharmaceutical industry's specialty! In that respect, they have to equal. The drug companies are very adept at what they do, and they're quite powerful and highly influential in both the media and the medical profession. To try to fight them would be a losing cause. People need to do their own research, and decide what's best for themselves. Look, statins have been around for nearly twenty years, but where has it gotten us? Practically nowhere! Heart disease is still a major killer, even though millions of people are now taking them. The media continues to run headlines reporting the benefits of these drugs. But, except for a small article that I spotted, no major newspaper reported the exceptional benefits that fish oil alone had over statins in preventing heart disease! And to this very day, no major study has ever been carried out to investigate the Pauling Therapy, and what effect that may have! It's a circus, it really is, and I'm getting pretty sick and tired of it. Now, I'm sure that many doctors believe in their hearts that they are treating their patients the best they can. And so many of them prescribe statins. But where are these doctors getting their information from? From the drug companies, that's where. As I said, it's a real circus, and a rather ridiculous one at that. And in the meantime, heart disease continues to take it's toll! So I ask you, where is all this propaganda getting us? Nowhere! It's just lining the pockets of the big drug companies.

U know I am on the same page about statins as U are. My biggest gripe is when U tell a dr. that U had bad experiences with them, they still try to find a new med. out U haven't tried, and try to convince U to try it. I have been thru 3 drs. over the fact I won't take a statin again, as they get really upset with you and then start treating U like your a nuisance to them. Like I have told you, this new dr. is starting to get on my case, even though I have gotten my numbers down. Next visit we are defintiely going to have a good long talk, because I am not going to go thru this hassle again.

My daughter was just told her cholesterol is a bit high, as is her BP and blood sugar, but at least her dr. told her she thinks if she loses weight and gets some exercise, she can bring everything down to a normal level. It is so far and few between that U find a dr. like that, and like I told my daughter, be very grateful U have a dr. like her, as most would want to shove U on meds immediately. Only thing she put her on was a mild diuretic, and said she would monitor her every month for the BP and every 3 months for the other stuff, and that to me is common sense. I think alot of people are afraid to upset their drs and take these drugs just to keep the peace. JMHO
Hey JMHO not me, my doctor practically walked out the door when I said that I would never put another one in my mouth but just so happen I had printed some really good articles for her. As she left the door, I put them on the desk and as the nurse came in she started to hand them to me and I said to her, "Oh No, they are Dr. G". Well let me tell you, every since that she has been really nice.

But a month or so ago, she came in and asked me if I would humor her and let her run a stress test because she is worried about me. I said, "SURE". She came back on my next visit and told me she could stop worrying now as it was very clear & rarely do they see such clarity on a 64 yr. old. I said, "It must be the CoQ10 I take daily." She did not comment. My numbers have been over 300 since Me****r came out in the 80's and I couldn't take it either. Just got latest numbers back a few days ago and it was 310.

My neighbor across the street has always had numbers under 200 so never worried about it but upon taking a stress test, he ended up in the hospital and had a 5 bypass surgery. Soooooo, now he is on Lipitor. I told him to watch for unexplained pain and just remember what I said.

As I tell everyone, it is all about big Pharma and money. My pharmacist even says they get paid for each prescription they write, thereby explaining how they know only a third of the patients who are written a statin prescription fill them. Also explaining why they insist on writing the latest & most expensive.

Dr. Golomb at the University of California/San Diego has been doing statin studies. Smart Money magazine had a fantastic article back sometime ago about her and interviews with some of the people that she has been working with and are really handicapped now.

So I say to everyone, please, please do your research and talk to people. I really feel sorry for the older people because many don't have computers and are also from the old school that think their doctor would not give them anything to hurt them. I was told so many times that it couldn't be the statin and if it was, after being off of it that long the pain would have gone away.

My dr. told me not to believe everything I read on the web, so I guess she isn't impressed with the articles I recieve from friends or look up on my own. Hubby had the same problem with his dr. till he finally had a darn good talk with both her and his cardio man. His cardio man is very open to learning and hearing about some of the stuff he brings in, as like he said, he just hasn't the time to web surf. I hope after a good talk with my new dr. she will get off my case, and I had an Echo done last year that was fine. HUbby always had nice low numbers, yet in 94 they found he had a 90-95% blockage on his left side, so within 2 weeks he was in for a "Roto-Rooter" job. Luckily all went fine, but as we have discussed on here before, many folks have had problems and yet they have nice numbers, so I don't think these drs. should be going just by what your numbers are.

We didn't have a computer before 1999, and I always say, if we had one and I knew then what I know now, as soon as hubby and I started having problems, I would have been aware it might be the statins. He took them for 7 years, now has PN and a host of other problems. I took Lipitor for almost 4 months, and it took a GI guy almost 6 months to straighten me out. As soon as I was ok, they shoved me on Baycol, oh yeah, they sure did a number on me, and that is when I tossed all statins in the pail, as did hubby. Now we seem to be finding more and more folks telling us they have all sorts of problems from taking statins and are dumping them. Yes, there definitely are some folks who can take them with no problems, so if they can, fine, but if they are messing up the quality of your life, they aren't worth it. Like hubby's cardio man said, if any drug messes up your quality of life, it should not be used, and if an alternative can't be found, you will just have deal with high numbers and your dr. should just monitor U a lil closer. The dr. started taking Lipitor and told us he is having some neck problems, and he feels it may be due to the Lipitor, so is going to try going off to see what happens. WE have to see him in Jan., so it will be interesting to find out what happened.

Have a good one..... :wave:

Isn't it funny how doctors are so quick to point out that we should not believe everything we read on the web, yet THEY are the ones who are guilty of believing virtually every claim that the drug companies make about their blockbuster drugs? It doesn't seem to matter that many of their claims are lies and distortions. Doctors still swallow it, hook, line, and sinker.

Yup, and that is why I believe so many folks agree to take the stuff even if they don't want to, as the drs. can really make U feel like crap, one was even nasty to me. Needless to say, I walked out, asked for my bill, wrote a check and came home! I know 2 people that keep getting their statins filled, but never take them, but rather then listen to their drs. harp, they pretend they take them. Now really, is that the biggest crock going or what? I can't imagine myself paying out money each month for something I don't even take just to keep a drs. mouth shut, NO WAY!!......... :rolleyes:
JJ,

You're absolutely right. And I won't go to a doctor unless I'm really sick, and need medical attention. I'm not interested in lifelong drug therapy that cures nothing, but keeps the drug companies happy. I'm only interested in cures. Now, if the drug companies would only get up off their fat butts and start spending more money on research and development, and less on advertising, then maybe they would be able to come up with some cures for a change. But I don't believe they're really interested in that. It wouldn't be quite as profitable as a lifelong regimen of drug therapy, would it?

Well I have to go evey 3 months as I developed high BP, but if it wasn't for that, I also would go when absolutely necessary. My old dr. use to have to call me to tell me I was overdue for a physical, but he was not a pill pusher and always worked with us on everything.

My husband always says the same thing, why should they cure anything, they wouldn't make any money. He is totally convinced they have cures for many of the illnesses out there, and I'm beginning to believe it myself.

Oh well, for now I will just do my thing, tell this dr. either get off my case or let me sign a statement saying she advised me to take a statin, or off I go to find another dr. I don't care if I have to go to every dr. in CT. till I find one that is not hung up on numbers. At 64, I am not about to argue with someone half my age because they feel guidelines are sooooo important. If I am wrong, so be it, but that is my feeling on the entire thing, so either take it, or leave it. Geez, nasty old lady, ain't I....... :D

Hubby just got back from Hershey, said it was nice, but way too much to see in a short 3 days. Oh well, he sure will sleep well tonight, he is mighty tired and even has a sunburn. Raining like crazy here, guess that cool front is moving on in.

Have a good one and TTYL.... :wave: :yawn: :yawn:
Hi folks: been reading all your articles on the statins, Have had the exact same sxperience . I have gone from one md to another, even tried niaspam and flaxseed oil. Well niaspam gave me severe flushes and flaxseed oil gave me cramps and diarrhea. Now the pmd has me trying lescol20 mg every other day. I added coq10 75mg 1x day dont know if it is the correct dose because my pmd doesnt believe in it. any suggestions? I spoke to one cardiologist and he suggested tonic water to help with the leg cramps. bought it and ugh it tasted bad. Haven't used it since Hope someone can help>
You might be low on magnesium causing the leg cramps. Your doctor might do a serum blood test for this. I would expect that from him seeing where he doesn't believe in Coq10. Anyway, you can't test your magnesium by a serum test...it must be an intercellular test. Your blood will try to maintain itself at any cost even robbing your cells of magnesium. Also you might tell your uninformed doctor that in Health Canada, (the equivalent to our FDA) has issued a warning that statins will indeed deplete Coq10. It it should be taken with statins. My mother was diagnosed with ataxia. A prominent doctor at cornell, said that Coq10 deficiency was most likely the cause of brain damage in the specific area of the brain, the cerebellum. This was the result of stain drugs. Ask your docotr if he would like to push you around in your wheel chair, like we do my mother.
Love your answer. Well I am still taking the lescol every other day and will start on it daily next week. I continue to take the coq10 75 mg daily. so far no leg cramps and no other pain thats new. Too soon to tell. thanks for the help finres. I.m going off to swim now. Gotta get my exercise in. again thanks and keep in touch.
You really should have at least 300 mg of Coq10 PER DAY.
Saw your recommation of coq10 300 mg daily. does it go by the persons weight or the amount of the statin I'm taking? I think I have to work up to it slowly. I dont seem to tolerate medication very well. Next week when I start taking the lescol daily I'll increase the coq10 to 150 mg. Is that ok?
