Default Stopped Zetia

I have takenZetia for 5 years with no side effects. About 2 weeks ago my PCP told me he had gone to a conference with some very high respected cardiologists and found out that Zetia does not have the effect on the heart and cholestera that many MD'S originally thought. My Dr. Took me off of Zetia last week, in the last 2 days my lower legs are killing me and feel very weak. Has anyone else stopped this medication and had these side effects? My Dr. Also told me to take 4 fish oil capsules daily.
