I am currently taking 20 mg. of Pravastatin once a day and have noticed recently upon finishing a meal to experience increased fatigue for about 1-2 hours, I also am experiencing muscle fatigue and muscle burn especially in my hips upon exertion. I know these are side effects of a statin, just wondering how to proceed?

Started Pravastatin 20 mg tablet one month ago. I have been vomiting but this has gotten less frequent. I have lost 10 pounds, have a rash and bruise easily. Past crainotomy for brain anerysums and have epilepsy. I m currently taking Lyrica and Methadone for Cervical problems. Could the Pravastatin cause more harm than good for me?

I currently take Atenolol (100 mg twice daily), Lisinopril (20 mg twice daily and HCTZ 12.5 once daily for blood pressure. I take Prevastatin for cholesterol and I take Jardian (10 mg once daily) for diabetes. Will moringa interfere with these meds?

I am a 70 year old female who has been on a statin drug for over 20 years. The 40 mg pravastatin I am currently taking lowers my cholesterol to a good range. My problem is occasionally I have really bad muscle aches. I would then take only half the dosage for a few weeks and then go back to the 40 mg. This time for the last few weeks this has not worked and the 20 mg is still causing really bad muscle aches. Is there something else I can take?
