    I lost 30 pounds and I believe it is from the Crestor. I hadn't exercised more or did anything different in fact, I did recently eat a bunch of crappy foods like pizza and ice-creams I've been doing this for months which I shouldn't because it may cause long terms affects.

    I took this drug for two weeks, My feet and legs hurt so bad I could hardly stand on them and my job requires me to stand. I quit it after 2 weeks and the leg pain stopped the next day but I have developed an irregular heat beat. Now I will have to have treatment for this. I do not recomend this drug. The health problems it causes only adds to the original problem.

    Comment:
    Crestor has lowered my total cholesterol from above 260 to below 150. Also improved my LDL and HDL numbers. Originally tried Zocor but I couldn't sleep from the first day I tool Zocor. No side effects from Crestor other than a slight decrease in libido (I've seen other complain about this.) However, with a little work, I can overcome that problem. Besides, it's better than bypass surge ... Show Full Comment
