Vytorin/blood glucose

Postby JoyfulPilgrim » Sat Nov 12, 2005 2:28 pm

Has anyone but me ever thought that Vytorin was raising thier blood glucose level?

I have been on Vytorin for 8 days and my blood glucose has been rising ever since the day I started. Nothing else in my program has changed but the pharmacy assures me that this is not a side effect of Vytorin.

Any comments, pro or con would be appreciated

Lipitor is know to raise blood sugar levels, so it wouldn't surprise me if Vytorin did also. Vytorin is a combination of Zocor (statin) and Zetia.

Post from the People's Pharmacy website:
"Lipitor Raises Diabetics' Blood Sugar"

One of Dr Graveline's articles about Zocor:

Page down to the 2nd message, 3rd paragraph.

"He had the shuffle, hard time getting up, from a chair.. He has not filled the prescripiton yet, as I won't do it.. He now has high blood pressure now, and is a diabetic, and metabolic problems."

I've also heard others say statins raised blood sugar levels.
