Can any one tell me how long Crestor 20 stays in ones system?
I'll explain why I am asking:
My doctor,whom I seldom visited,left the family practise to work in the E.R. of the local hospita.
After two months I found another doctor who could take me on. At the first vist he put me on high blood prssure meds. My blood prssure was somewhat high at that time.Most likely due to some seriuos family problems. At that time he also arranged to see a specialist to check my heart.
Now the part of the question: I saw this specialist on Febr.22.2011. He immediately put me on Crestor 20. And would arrange for a Cardiolyte Stress Test on the treadmill. This took place on March 22,2011. On the 6TH.of April I saw him at his office for the result of that test.
Back in 2001 I had a heart attack and a stent was put in. I was put on Cresto at that time too. But developed some very serious muscle pain and weaned my self off the Crsetor. I had 8 very good years,without hardly any chest pain at all. Now in the period between Febr.22 and April 6th I developed some serious chest pains on several occassions. The specialist told me that the stress test showed very little deterioration since 4 years ago,when they did stress test for me to get my drivers license renewed.
I hope to be 78 years old on May 4,Lord willing.
Can the Crsetor 20 have caused these pains and how long doed the stuff stay in your system.
Long storey,but hope for a good answer.
