Alternative to statins

I am willing to try Repatha again even though it gave me hip pain. I am really hoping that it isn’t a bad pain.

Zetia gave me neuropathy so I stopped it and the neuropathy went away. I tried Rosuvastatin and that also caused neuropathy. I quit the statin and the neuropathy remained. Neuropathy is listed as a side effect for both drugs. I wish my physician would have warned me, but he didn’t realize neuropathy could be a side effect. I guess I should have read the fine print. Another doctor told me that neuropathy is a fairly common side effect.

My husband’s statin raised his A1c to almost a diabetic level.

I too am pro statins, but not all people can deal with the side effects. I think the side effects that people have to deal with are mostly unreported.
