I have a long history with statins, and it’s not all rosy and nice. I’ve taken all sorts of statins over the past 10 years, and I could fill a book with all the nasty side effects I’ve experienced, one worse than the other.

My doctor switched me to Crestor because I was having terrible leg pain, joint swelling, bone and muscle pain, loss of bone density, even mood swings and severe depression from the other statin drugs I’ve tried. I couldn’t even walk for two blocks without having to sit down due to severe pain everywhere, from my feet and all the way up to my shoulders. When the doctor finally recommended Crestor, I had reached a point where I didn’t even want to try anything anymore, they all seemed the same and they were all putting me through ****. Eventually I agreed to take it, only because I had never tried it before. Much to my surprise, it lowered my cholester immediately, but without all those excruciating side effects. After more than 10 years struggling with high cholesterol, I finally found a statin drug that is not only bearable, but it works really well also!

In just three months on 20 mg of Crestor daily my total cholesterol went from 360 to 180, my HDL went from 65 to 74, and my LDL dropped from 283 to 104. It’s the first statin to ever get my cholesterol below 200. Regular liver tests came back with no red flags, so it’s all working perfectly. I really hope it works as well for everyone as it did for me. I was satisfied with the service as well, I got my order quite quickly and I think it’s a good price. I strongly recommend it.
