Zocor and Heart Palpitations
I started taking Zocor about 3 weeks ago and now notice that I have heart palpitations. Is this a side effect of this drug?
Vmitch - I started taking zocor 6 days ago and my heart is beating out of my chest. Honestly feels like I am manic! I can't sleep, have called the doctor and left message. Are all statins this way, from what I have read they are. So what is worse this medication or the change we may have plaque build up?
Bobby - Whoa! Who told you that Zocor would prevent plaque build up? Sorry, but most statins use wording like "has not been shown to prevent heart disease, heart attacks, or strokes." This is true. But Zocor will lower your cholesterol, and it will do that very well. But prevent heart disease? I wish I could tell you such a pill exists. Hope you get to feeling better. Take care.
