I have tried other statins and had problems with muscle cramps. I have had occasional calf cramps with Crestor. I have been taking Crestor for only about three weeks. I have had back pain for about a week now and severe constipation. I like that I don't have the muscle cramps and it does lower the cholesterol level.

No more leg pains or bloody stools, I can sl ... Show Full Comment
