Default Zetia

I hav been taking 80 mg of Lipitor for over a year with no result in lowering my LDL by any great amount. I was put on Zetia and in about 9 weeks I hav gone from an LDL of over 300 to 85 and don't seem to have any side affects as of yet. My Toal cholesterol went from almost 4oo to 165. I am amazed and grateful for the boost Zetia has given me. I am also on several other mdications that have not been affected by the addition of the Zedtia. (Insulin -2 types 5 shots a day, blood pressure meds, antidepressants, antianxiety meds, synthroid, anticonvulsive meds) I am tickled pink with my results.

Default Zetia side effects

I am a physician who took Lipitor and other similar, with terrible neck, back and leg pains and weakness. After using Zetia for a couple weeks,I began to notice leg pain, fatigue, and headaches. The muscle pains seem to affect the muscles most used. Agree that physicians many times do not have a clue. Onset of side effects may occur at ANY time during treatment course, months or years later.
