Zocor, 10mg, lowered my cholesterol from 253 to 160. I do follow a very healthy diet of vegetables, fruit, good fats etc. and my blood work amazes the doctors since I am 67.

I have only been taking this medication for a week and I am noticing side effects I don't like. I have not been able to sleep properly. I wake up very frequently thorughout the night. I am currently experiencing flu like symptoms and feel feverish. I need to call my doctor to see if these effects would disappear eventually. I am worried.
