It has taken a lot of trial & error. Zocor lowered my cholesterol from 206 to 167. The HDL, LDL, & triglycerides also are giving good numbers.

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.

Comment:
I took this once and felt like I had the flu all night and the next day, extremely tired, so I stopped then started a month later with one pill and again felt the same symptoms. I'm concerned that if one feels this way after taking one pill. Does it get better?
