Someone I know was just switched off of Crestor-should I stop taking mine?
Your doctor knows your complete medical history and considered your individual needs in deciding that you need medical treatment to lower your cholesterol and that Crestor is the appropriate medication for you.
High cholesterol is a chronic condition with potentially serious health consequences. It cannot be cured, but it can be managed successfully. Ongoing treatment is necessary to keep it under control. Crestor, together with a healthy diet and regular exercise, can be a highly effective combination in cholesterol management. Do not discontinue medications without consulting your doctor.
As with all currently marketed statins, if you develop any unexplained muscle pain, tenderness, or weakness, at any time during treatment (especially if you also have a fever or feel ill), tell your doctor right away, as they may be signs of serious side effects. Be sure to tell your doctor about other medications you are taking. If you have any concerns about taking Crestor, please contact your doctor to discuss them.
