    The symptoms you describe are classic of statin poisoning. I encourage you to fight back. Do not be afraid to confront the physician who injured you and got paid to do it. Its a white collar crime, and only when consumers stand up and fight will this - 63% more...

    she's only been off crestor for a week. give her a little time, the side effects can start to clear. i'd take her to a naturopath and get her on a detox regimen with optimal nutrition. a conventional medical doctor is going to put your mother on more - 21% more...

    Fish oil, CoQ10 healthy food eg organic eggs, fish, cream, butter, nutrient dense vegetables. Ignore every single thing white coats and authorities told us as you and I know they only gave us a painful poisoning.

    How is crestor taken?
    Should you take crestor before you eat or after you eat? Should you only take it in the AM?

    Crestor should never be "taken!" If you mix Crestor with cheese, the combination is an excellent rat poison.

    any and all statins can cause muscle wasting. if you are having problems on crestor, just stop taking it. don't let your doctor talk you into trying lipitor or simvastatin, etc. they are all the same, just different companies' versions to try to cash - 51% more...
