Postby montana » Sat Apr 29, 2006 2:57 pm

After 12 weeks of taking Vytorin 10/40 and having muscle pains and being tired all the time and several other symptoms, I ended up with a sever muscle pain and a horrible rash that my doctor says is Shingles. I have stopped taking Vytorin and now have I'm dealing with having Shingles (directly related to taking Vytorin) and all the other side effects of Vytorin.

Hi Montana,

Statins do adversely affect our immune system:

I've read several cases that shingles occurred shortly after
starting a statin drug. Hopefully you are receiving treatment
for shingles... the sooner - the better.
