Crestor and magnesium

Common Questions and Answers about Crestor and magnesium

crestor

( both hands) Thumb pain started immediately with the Crestor and now after 2 months, the elbows and knees are starting to feel some discomfort. I do exercise 3x a week and I am starting to have to make adjustments with certain exercises and yoga poses. I have tried most of all the cholesterol lowering mediations and there's always's some annoying side effect. Now after not taking them for ten years, I have developed some blockage and do to want it to progress so I am back on the meds.
I seem to be intolerant of these drugs and have tried Crestor, Lipitor and Lescol. My PVC's go absolutely nuts when I take them. I have done my own tests by going off and on them. I consistently get worse when I'm on them. I take C0Q10 and a whole bunch of supplements including magnesium to no avail. Any feedback would be appreciated.
I’ve moved on to 20mg Crestor and 162 mg aspirin over the years, and my total cholesterol is now in the 140’s with LDL in the 90’s and HDL around 46. My exercise regimen isn’t what it used to be when I was in the gym 5 days a week, but I’m still active and want to ramp it back up to what it was. My cardiologist just put me on 25 mg of Toprol XL because of the RCA blockage.
After rigorous exercise it did little to nothing for the cholesterol. That is why they put me on Crestor. And it has dropped the cholesterol and triglyceride levels. But at 106 there is too much of a good thing. Also I am just about convinced that if I got my thyroid level up a bit, That I'd be able to eliminate the Statin. Since the last blood test I've started splitting my Crestor pills in half (5 mg per day instead of 10).
i had my stress test done and no change since that year a good thing, i have recently for the first time done a nuclear stress test and all is well. sooooooo what do i do. i take 250 magnesium, i take flaxseed oil and i still have these things. i am again going to start an event monitor tomorrow so i can make sure once again, which i know, i am having pvs and pacs,... i just dont know how to get past this and know that i am ok.
us 20/12.5mg, crestor 10mg and aspirin 100mg (i also smoke). i had follow up tests and all were ok except liver again, still high but he didnt seem too concerned when i told him i was drinking the night before the test. My pains started after i started medication. does any of my prescriptions also affect the liver also? Any comments would be appreciated.
I'm also on weekly vitamin B-12 shots because I have Pernicious Anemia, and I take calcium to help build bone, selenium 200 mcg and magnesium 200 mg/day. You might want to ask your NP about selenium... Studies show that selenium is instrumental in the conversion of FT4 to FT3. Another mineral that many of us are deficient in, is magnesium. Magnesium can help alleviate a lot of the muscle/joint aches/pains we tend to have.
Some supplements that may help with blood sugar are GTF chromium, magnesium, Alpha-lipoic acid, and Coenzyme Q10. Please talk with your doctor before taking any suppplements.
However, he said it could NOT be causing me so much pain. He checked out my arm and noticed a hard soft tissue knot, and suggested removing it through surgery and it "might" relieve my pain. So, 3 weeks ago I had the said surgery and it was removed (a hard soft tissue mass about the size of a marble). No, this was not the cyst inside my humerus bone. Anyways, I still have the pain, and it is extremely terrible at night (on a scale of 1 to 10, a 20 at night).
Armour Candida Free probiotic Singulair vitamin/mineral combo with antioxidants and extras Calcium/magnesium/vit D B complex B12 shots (monthly) Adrenal adaptogen Vit C Sometimes when I remember Immune and thymus support glandular mix CoQ10 It gets really hard to fit everything in when you have to take thyroid meds 2 X per day and keep it apart from vitamins.....really hard! :) :) I find I don't take everything daily like I should because it has to be on time and spaced properly.
Doctors are dumbfounded and tend to blame it all on the Diabetes, but that is a totally different feeling. I am considering the magnesium and asking the doctor if I can stop the Crestor for a few days and see if that makes a difference. I don't have my gall bladder, so I don't know if I should try the flush, but I'm open to all ideas.
Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued at least a dozen warnings about the dangers of PPIs, which include an increased risk of bacterial diarrhea, magnesium deficiency, and bone fractures (http://www.fda.gov). Long-term consumption of PPIs has also been linked to increased risk of pneumonia and unhealthy weight gain. 2) Statins.
I seem to have enough energy on 60 mg but still have other issues such as dry skin (hands and arms) and weak and burning muscles to name a couple. I was on levethyroxine for about four-teen months and really felt it was making me sick, that’s when I asked my doctor to switch me to Armour. I was really excited to get on the Armour and truly felt it would make me feel better because I had read it just works better.
I stopped the Crestor and I don't feel quite as tired. Also I didn't attribute the muscle pain and back pain I was having to it. It has mostly stopped also. I do have leg cramps but they were worse on the Crestor. I am going to get some Magnesium that was suggested by someone else. I wonder if I am converting the t4 to t3 correctly. If I post my last blood test that had the t3free test on it could you tell by that. The holistic MD that I went to did that test.
I must mention that i am taking crestor for cholesterol and insulin and oral medication for my diabetes. The possible diagnosis i have seen here is better that what i get from my doctor. I can't go to any other doctor or the ER because i can't afford it and don't want to place an additional financial burden on my family. i am interested in any homeopathic alternatives.Thanks again for sharing your stories.
Hello. I have need to stop taking Crestor due to important, progressive muscle and joint pain.My HDL is > 50 but I have been unable to control LDL only with diet.My cardiologist says that in Quito ( I am from Ecuador ), he has not been able to have patientes tolerating the neccesary dose of Niacin due to side effects. Do you have any other drug/s available (spacialy talking about new mediactions) to lower my LDL ?, and how efficient are they compared with statins?
I try to eat whole grain and eat right but it only last for soo long and then I fall off th wagon and go right back to the caffien and greasy foods. What ele can I do to maintain my cholesterol?
Start with 1T daily, increase gradually to 4T in 4 weeks Thyroid and adrenal fatigue must be ruled out! Tissue magnesium is normally not tested. Do you have the test results? It's serum levels they check, but for his purpose is not useful. 99% of magnesium is in the tissues. Need tissue analysis. This is not intended as a substitute for medical advice.
This condition seems to be getting worse. The medications that I take are lisinopril 20mg x1, crestor 20mg x1, lovasa 1gm x2 twice daily, and janumet x 1 twice daily. I also take L-arginine 1000mg, dhea 50mg, d-3 1000mg, Calcium 2000mg, magnesium 800mg and zinc 15mg, korean ginseng 200mg. I have started taking the supplements after the onset of the symtons.
) during the day..at work...and now...at home...and at night when Im trying to watch tv..and when I go out to eat...and when I go to a movie..or for a walk...or or OR OR OR!!!! They are alllllllways with me. Not constantly....but irregularily regular. If that makes sense. Meaning...I can pretty much count on them coming daily...at SOME point, in my day, I will feel one or two "BLIPS"... and then suddenly, they are back, and going strong.
My doctor says its from Vitamin D and Magnesium deficiencies. I think she's too close to the situation and would like to consult another doctor, but don't know what kind of specialist to see about muscle problems. Any suggestions?
My doctor admitted that the high levels were more than likely caused by the thyroid issue but he wanted to start me on Crestor right away. I had never had a cholesterol problem before and and the levels weren't THAT high, so I refused, thinking that if the problem was caused by thyroid, why wouldn't it be solved when the thyroid levels got balanced?
Natural herbs and supplements like willow bark, boswellia, cherry, ginger, MSM, fish oil, glucosamine, magnesium, sappan, and ribose can help with pain. There are some formulas which combine some of these so you don't have to take them indvidually, just search the internet. Always check with your doctor before taking a natural supplement because some may interact with certain prescription meds.
anti-inflammatory vitamins , vitamin D (at least 1,000 to 2,000 units a day) may be the most important although you clearly need adequate amounts of vitamins A, C, and E along with the minerals zinc, magnesium, potassium, and selenium. Exercise is another proven in-flammation-reducer, partly as a result of its fat-burning effect, fat cells increase inflammation.
You might do a search on the internet about arrhythmia and magnesium deficiency.. just make sure , if you take magnesium, that you find one that doesn't upset your stomach and is well absorbed. Magnesium glycinate is one such form. Slo Mag is a form often prescribed by docs because it is supposedly easy on the tummy but it kept me in the bathroom.. ugh.
I am on Atenolol...and a healthy dose...50 mg in the morning..and 50 mg at night. I have read posts here where people really have trouble with it, but I just love it. It keeps my heartrate down---and (most...well...some..) of the time it helps with the palpitations. I had some dizziness when I first started taking it, but thats it. Not one other side effect. I was also on Lipitor a year ago...It really worked, and I had zero side effects from that. Hope this helps!
I have been in the chest and foot buzzing/vibrating club for years now. I don't take any medication, my heart has been cleared as good. Yes, its annoying at nite when your trying to sleep, my bed use to shake ever so slightly sometimes because of it. Right now as I write this my left inside foot, closer to the heel is buzzing/vibrating actually like a pulsing buzz some more pronounced than others, I just came in from shoveling snow.
I've had heart surgery 4 times because of chemo I took when I was younger. The statin (crestor) just made me hurt all over and I could not get my pain under control at all. But, I talked to my doctor and he listened and we made the choice to stop the statin for awhile and I can now control the pain like I used too. Crestor was the only thing that had changed so we looked at it first and alot of people have problems with it you just don't hear it from the commercials or the drug companies.
Triglycerides 119 HDL 61 LDL 200 My dr wants to put me on meds and i would like to try to avoid that. she suggested taking coq10 and fish oil. I did some research and found Omega Q plus by dr Sinatra. http://www.****.*** Wondering if anyone has taken this and if it has been successful for you?
I went to the ER and they found nothing wrong with me and my EKG only showed an IRBBB and Sinus Tach. I went to the ER two days later still afraid and they still only found IRBBB and sinus tach. I asked to be refered to a cardiologist and had an echo done which showed no abnormalites and a perfectly normal heart. I also had a EKG later on and it again only showed an IRBBB. Since then I have not had the fluttering feeling but have goten very troubling symptoms.
