... I was on Vytorin 10/20 for 1 year. I started having diarrehea almost immediatly especially right after a meal and in the mornings. Some days I'd be driving and I felt like I was going to pass out. Extreme tiredness. Dr says its Irritable Bowel Syndrome and Anxiety. Funny, never had this problem before taking Vytorin! Anyone else? (4 replies)

I am 27yr old male, excellent health, 6'0" - 185lbs. My diet is not the greatest, but fair. I work steadily, busy-body most every day, but have not exercised regularly since college (athlete).

... The Vytorin 10/20 (even with splitting, at times) has caused me muscle aches (like a charley-horse) in the back of my ankles and thighs that have been persistent for 1 + month. I have decided that the side effects are not worth it with my numbers. I'm going to stop taking it and take Cholest-off, Slo-Niacin and Fish Oil and check my numbers in 30 days. If I can get a...

... I read a ton of posts on here about Vytorin and it seems the stuff, even with the lower dosage of 10/20 gets HUUGGEEE reductions on their cholesterol, I remember reading some who was around 290 and the # went down to 136!!!! Which I think it outrageous and TOO low personally. Doctor told my Husband -whose Numbers are NOT outrageous (245, HDL 41, LDL 160?) to NOT cut his... (1 replies)
... Upon my recent visit (new doctor-internist), I was introduced to Vytorin. The dr. said that it was a good way to get down total and ldl with less statin (like Lenin said). I have to repeat my lab work in November so I'm sure he'll be wanting me to start on it. I'm taking Slo-Niacin 500 mg x 2 each day plus supplementing with COQ10. My prior doctor gave me a prescription... (6 replies)
... The only problem is that ALL dosages of Vytorin contain 10 mg. ezetimibe whether they contain, 10, 20 or 40 mg. simvastatin. ... (1 replies)
... Dave, OH ! The wonders of Statin meds ! Good for you. :) I bet it feels good to be in control now. I would just knock off some of the junk foods and the tri's should drop. Otherwise, your results look to be in the "cleaning mode". :cool: I take 10/20 and feel superdeeduper ! (9 replies)
... Vytorin contains 10 milligrams of ezetimibe and 20 milligrams of simvastatin. Your doctor may believe that 20 mg of simvastatin alone might not get the job done based on the results of his previous use of Vytorin. ... (8 replies)

... Dave, I am scheduled for blood work sometimes this week. Doc told me that if there are any problems he will call. IF he does not call I assume no problems. Then I will go over results with him in September is my next doc visit. Let you know. Otherwise doing super on a very small dose of Vytorin. I take 10/20 split in half which amounts to 5/10 and according to... (16 replies)

... Overrun, Those numbers are about what I calculated that splitting a vytorin 10/20 would do with my untreated numbers (that is, hypothetically speaking, you never know who is reading these boards;) . I calculated that it would be an average 7% difference (above) my numbers with 10/20 thus would justify using less of both the Zetia and Zocor components. The thing that... (26 replies)
... I believe I started on the Olivio two weeks before I was tested. Prior to that I was using another brand (name escapes me at the moment) and prior to that I was using Benecol for almost a year. Aside from all the different statins I was on, I practically ate oatmeal for breakfast for a straight year, salads or lunch and a decent dinner, drank water and no soda! At one point I... (9 replies)
... Thank you for the reply. I also do not understand why Vytorin at first either. Actually, I didn't even get to see the dr. They called and read me my cholesterol score, called in the Vytorin, and told me to get fish oil. ... (10 replies)
