Statins and SEs: Crestor, (rosuvastatin) while a good statin drug, does have the risk of some severe side effects.

But, it may take five to seven days to get to a low enough blood level to be considered 'out of your system'. ...Read more

I have been taking a statin drug x 2 months. Started having severe joint and muscle pain especially in knees and hip. Should I discontinue use? It is interfering with daily worouts and normal activities.

Contact your doc: You should contact your physician. Statins can cause muscle pain and weakness, however sometimes changing medication or lowering the dose can still allow you to get the cholesterol lowering benefit of the medication while avoiding the side effects. Your physician will also discuss other possibilities for your pain to ensure it is indeed the medication and not another cause, such as your workouts. ...Read more

Tell your prescribing physician (psychiatrist, right/) what's going on. You may need adjustment of dose and/or regimen. ...Read more

Is exercise harmful or helpful to the joints and muscle?

Is exercise harmful or helpful to the joints and muscle?

Depends: This really depends. A program of gradually increasing exercise can really help strengthen the joints and muscles because 1) it strengthens the muscles, ligaments, and tendons, thereby offloading the joints, and 2) contributes to weight loss thereby offloading joints. Jumping into running or heavy weightlifting without ramping up gradually can be really harmful though. The key is gradual. ...Read more
