Question: Zetia


 gewhitaker - Sun Oct 17, 2004 11:42 am

Hello

I have taken all the statins on the market and have had the same reactions to them, i.e, muscle pain, dizziness, weakness. I started taking Zetia about 7 days ago and I would like to know if Zetia can be responsible for the body pain I am having now. I also have FMS, so it is difficult for me to tell immediately which it is. However, I do not have the fuzzy thinking that goes along with the FMS. I take Ultram for FMS and it controls the pain, but it is not relieving the pain I am having now.

Thank you.

User avatar Hi gewhitaker,
You should tell your doctor if you have any unexplained muscle pain, weakness, or tenderness as these are some of the side effects of Zetia.
Sincerely,
Rntdj
