    Terrible pain in hips, legs, and lower back. Could not walk without holding onto something. Difficult to turn over in bed. Couldn't function. Almost an invalid. Did not like this drug at all, finally quit taking.

    This drug took down my levels, but after a few months, I could barely walk from the pain in my hips and legs. I felt like a 90 year old crippled and I'm 50. I had to get off the meds, it affected my bones and muscles terribly. I'm very active and this drug kept me bed ridden from pain, and lack of desire to move.

    Been taking Vytorin 10/80 for 4 years. Within the last six months, leg pain has sometimes been extremely annoying. Don't know if the Vytorin is causing it, but will see the Dr. to determine.
