Not reported side ef: Interesting question. Not a reported side effect. A few studies have reported a decrease in androgen levels in both men and women on pravastatin. This could potentially lead to fat accumulation in the abdomen. I would however look for other more common causes and especially be sure to check the thyroid function.
