Can I take a different statin after developing rhabdomyalysis from Lipitor, (atorvastatin) then Crestor?
No. That is a pretty serious reaction. I would try different therapy for your lipids.
Its not known. The occurance of rhabdo seems lower than we first thought and aches/pains were called rhabdo when it isn't. BUT, the rhabdo is a combination of the drug GROUP'S effect and genetic susceptibility. I would suspect that if someone had the CK (muscle enzyme) elevation with one... they'll have it with all. Personally, all my pts (3) followed this pattern. BUT, 1-3 days and testing... not huge risk.
I take 20mg lipitor, (atorvastatin) my cholesterol was222 but is under 100 now. Should I stop taking this statin. I want to take moringa. Is it safe to take the 2?
Moringa? Had to look up Moringa. It is an herbal tea that is supposed to help a whole host of ailments. could not find any contraindications to use with any specific drug. Probably ok to use with lipitor, (atorvastatin) a statin. Ck with nutritionist. You got a remarkable reduction in your cholesterol with only 20 of Lipitor (atorvastatin). Check with ur doc if dose appropriate 4 u. Need to know ur LDL & HDL before & since therapy. Read more...
Consult doctor. If would not be wise to stop taking statin without consulting the doctor who prescribed it and I would suggest that you not discontinue taking it. Moringa is not a regulated medication. See this site for information, I reiterate that you consult your doctor before treating yourself. http://www.webmd.com/vitamins-supplements/ingredientmono-1242-MORINGA.aspx?activeIngredientId=1242&activeIngredientName=MORINGA.
