In brief: Lovastatin effects

All of the statins have some side effects, the two most concerning are abnormal liver enzymes and muscle aches and pains.
Both of these are evaluated with blood tests. I am not familiar with any of these meds causing depression. Depression is a complicated illness and some meds can interfere with antidepressant meds, they don't cause it.
