Been on Mevacor for a month, well the generic, and not sure if it's the med or something else, causing my head to hurt so bad, eyes hurting, blurred vision, ect...also have migraines, but take medicine, been to the eye dr. nothing wrong with my eyes, and thought about the only thing different is the medicine I started after my physical for high cholesterol Mevacor. So, I'm not taking it for a few days to see if this is the problem, and hope it is, but wondered if anyone else has had trouble with this particular medicine in the past, and could tell me your symtoms if you have and if you had to discontinue it, or if you ar on it and it's done good for you. This is the only thing different I have done in the last month and just thought about it, and even called my neur for migraines, not thinking of this, which he just prescribed more migraine meds which are very stronge and I'm not comfortable taking, so called a phamacist and this is what she suggested is to not take the Mevacor 2 see Answered by Sabrina Bur 1 year ago.

I never took Mevacor, but did take a bunch of other cholesterol-lowering meds. They all gave me problems - mostly severe muscle pain. I now take Lescol and Zetia and am able to tolerate both. It could take some time for your system to be completely clear of the Mevacor; perhaps the pharmacist could tell how long. In any case, if your cholesterol is high, you should go back to the doctor and get a prescription for a different drug. Answered by Ruthie Dendy 1 year ago.

Anyone take Mevacor for high cholesterol?
My cholesterol is 210 and the Dr. wants me to take Mevacor ( a statin). Should I just lose some weight instead? If the cholesterol is under 250 can you skip the drugs? Asked by Flavia Struggs 1 year ago.

You should listen to your doctor's advice. Try to eat a healthy, well-balanced diet and get regular exercise. The combination of these activities will make you healthier. Answered by George Geyette 1 year ago.


What is Mevacor's side effects.?
It's medication for cholesterol Asked by Yessenia Spoleti 1 year ago.

The most common adverse reactions is headache. The less common adverse reactions are dizziness, peripheral neuropathy, insomnia, blurred vision, constipation, diarrhea, upset stomach, gas, abdominal pain or cramps, heartburn, vomiting, muscle cramps, myalgia, myositis, rash, itching and alopecia. The life-threatening adverse reaction is rhabdomyolysis. Because lovastatin (Mevacor) can elevate ALT, AST and CK levels, baseline liver function is usually done before starting the med and at 6 and 12 weeks (approximately) after starting the drug and when the dosage has been increased. LFTs (liver function tests) are also done periodically to monitor liver function. You can check online at any time to find out adverse and side effects of any medication. Answered by Alonzo Guse 1 year ago.

It can cause liver problems in rare cases, and it is a good idea to run a liver profile diagnostic after you've been using it for a while. Answered by Ute Filonuk 1 year ago.

Statins (Lipitor, Zocor, Mevacor, Pravachol, Crestor) are the number one selling drug in our country. Currently, 11 million people are taking a statin drug. The current national lipid guidelines estimate that 36 million people should actually be taking statins. How do statins reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease? stimulate production of HDL, which functions to remove excess cholesterol from cells stimulate production of LDL-cholesterol, reducing levels of free cholesterol in our blood stimulate the oxidation of LDL causes the exocytosis of cholesterol from cells; and stimulates cholesterol secretion into the intestine inhibit cholesterol synthesis; lowered cholesterol levels in cells induces the production of more LDL receptors Answered by Harriette Oneel 1 year ago.

Which would be the most beneficial? Think about this - don't just throw out an answer. What do statins do? I'll give you a hint - they have something to do with inhibiting enzymes in a biosynthetic pathway Answered by Precious Kosman 1 year ago.

NO problem with Lipitor. Always check out the drug online for side effects. You utimately end up being responsible for yourself and only you know yourself. I did have a bad experience with a high blood pressure med. They thought I was having heart problems and order a very expensive cath. My arteries or veins were ok, all they needed to do was change that med. Always know the side effects and watch like crazy and do those tests every three months to check his liver. Good luck. And when they do blood work, I always ask for a copy. I put the results in a spread sheet and add each new set of tests. Sometimes you may be normal but there may be a general trend you want to see and it could take place over some time and you want to be aware of it and point it out to your doctor. And if they don't pay attention, get another one. Answered by Paulita Fluty 1 year ago.


Has any ever taken Mevacor or lovastatin, to lower the cholesterol, if so did it help also,?
what if any are the side effects? Asked by John Looney 1 year ago.

Yes, I took Lovastatin, and had severe side effects. My legs ached and felt heavy, i had liver disfuction and was told never to take a statin again. Answered by Tyrone Mantione 1 year ago.

Lovastatin is used together with lifestyle changes (diet, weight-loss, exercise) to reduce the amount of cholesterol (a fat-like substance) and other fatty substances in the blood. Lovastatin is in a class of medications called HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors (statins). It works by slowing the production of cholesterol in the body. Buildup of cholesterol and fats along the walls of the blood vessels (a process known as atherosclerosis) decreases blood flow and, therefore, the oxygen supply to the heart, brain, and other parts of the body. Lowering blood levels of cholesterol and fats may help to decrease your chances of getting heart disease, angina (chest pain), strokes, and heart attacks. In addition to taking a cholesterol-lowering medication, making certain changes in your daily habits can also lower your cholesterol blood levels. You should eat a diet that is low in saturated fat and cholesterol, exercise 30 minutes on most, if not all days, and lose weight if you are overweight. Please see the web pages for more details on Lovastatin (generic name) Mevacor (brand name). Answered by Ola Mcmunn 1 year ago.

I thought it was from my severe migraines and contacted my neurologist and didn't even think about my regular dr.. put me on this medicine a month ago, and this is when my eye pain started. The neuro told me to go to my eye dr. to make sure I wasn't get Glaucoma from the meds I was taking for my migraines and the eye dr. said my eyes were fine and told the neuro and then he called in Depakote, which I won't take when I read all about the side affects, and just got yesterday. Then thought about the cholesterol med Mevacor, and thought maybe that's it, and it was around the time I started getting the eye pain, the blurred vision and nauseated feeling, and looked up the symtoms, and they are including in the symtoms. Anyone had this happen while taking Mevcor for cholestorol? And also, do I call my neuro about this Monday, my regular dr. about this who put me on the meds, or both? What do I do, I'm hurting so bad? Answered by Honey Lidie 1 year ago.

Call your pharmacist. They are so smart, and often know more about meds than doctors! Explain to the pharmacist what's going on, and he/she will guide you. I promise. Good luck to you. I really feel your pain. Too bad it's the weekend. You'll probably end up in the ER or, if you have insurance, Urgent Care (or whatever your insurance calls it.) Good luck, my friend. :) Answered by Tisha Thielemier 1 year ago.


Statins With The Least Side Effects?
I have found that Lovastatin/Mevacor gives me the least amount of side effects. Has anyone else found this to be true? Also my doctor told me that new research claims that CO Enznyme 10 lessens the side effects quite a bit of Statin drugs Asked by Young Parinas 1 year ago.

Very difficult to say. *ALL* statins to an extent, can cause problems when used for more than a couple of months. Doesn't matter which statin you use. Mevacor is no different. With Mevacor, these symptoms may not be as severe as other statins but they will be there nonetheless. Statins kill, and they do it slowly. As for the research, yes, Co Enzyme Q10 lessens the side effects of statins but unfortunately, CoQ10 has to be absorbed into your tissues in order to be effective in this case. That is not going to happen by taking CoQ10 supplements *orally*. Statins are deadly. IMO, you should try and find ways to reduce your glycemic load naturally. We don't *need* statins. There are plenty of ways to lower cholesterol naturally. We certainly don't need a drug that lowers cholesterol but gives us a whole host of other problems, some of which may be deadly (ie. cardio myopathy). Answered by Ka Hoiness 1 year ago.

Agree. There is post menopause high cholesterol pushing your total score into the 300s. That's not good. The right statin at the right dose is needed. Answered by Lakia Mirto 1 year ago.

I do not tolerate Statins very well...they work but the side effects drive me crazy...See if your Dr will try you on Zetia I get no side effects and the cholesterol levels are down where we want them. Answered by Astrid Lowler 1 year ago.

We need statins to help lower our cholesterol levels in our system. And when I say "WE", I mean the most widely taken drug/medicine that is being prescribed to a whole lotta "WE's" or Americans nowadays. Answered by Hai Rassman 1 year ago.


Is carafate used to treat high cholesterol?
my Dr. just told me to use it instead of mevacor Asked by Kacy Dumler 1 year ago.

Sucralfate is used to treat ulcers. It adheres to damaged ulcer tissue and protects against acid and enzymes so healing can occur. This medication is sometimes prescribed for other uses; ask your doctor or pharmacist for more information. Lovastatin is a member of the drug class of statins, used for lowering cholesterol (hypolipidemic agent) in those with hypercholesterolemia and so preventing cardiovascular disease. Consult your doctor. Please see the web pages for more details on Sucralfate (generic name) and Carafate (brand name) Lovastatin (generic name) Mevacor (brand name).
