Re: Niacin
Sep 6, 2006
I started out taking 20mg of Lovastatin for my cholersterol. After a couple of months I started having muscle pain. I refused to take it any longer so my DR put me on Niacin, 500mg daily to start with. She has gradually put me up to 2000 mg per day. I am having the same muscle pain, only worse. It is not too bad during the day but when I go to bed my whole body aches. It is like having a toothache or ear ache. I just throb and it is like I can feel each individual muscle in my body hurt. I have another appt next week and she wants to try Lipitor 5mg. My total cholesterol is 203 but I have angina so she is trying to be extremely careful. Has anyone out there had good luck with Lipitor?? I am so tired of this. Thanks for your input!!!
