I've been taking this drug for 3 years due to bad cholestrol results. This drug along with simivastin have, after many long years, put my cholestrol in the good ranges including my bad LDL levels.

Comment:
I've had a headache for about 3 weeks now ever since I started taking this and metformin. I also am just exhausted all day as well as having joint and muscle pain and am easily distracted and confused at times. I had this the last time I tried a Cholesterol medication as well.
