zocor

Can anyone tell me what experiences you have had taking zocor? Did it cause weight gain? What about memory loss? I am very curious if you have had these or other side effects. Thank You!!

Here is a study about some people having poor quality sleep. Now I and a close friend
who also has sleep apnia and diabetes like I do. Our Dr's both changed us from Lipitor
to simvistatin the generic for zocor. Both of us suddenly couldn't get enough sleep. I
was sleeping 12 to 14 hours a day. When I went back to Lipitor my sleep slowely returned to normal. But I found if I don't eat a lot of carbs I realy don't need a statin
drug.


Cholesterol Drug May Affect Sleep

I have sleep issues, I didn't realize it could be from the drug! I just put a call into my doctor to ask him if I could get off of it. My diabetes is under control..I don't have bad cholesterol...so I want off! We will see what he says.

My dh takes the generic form. He has no issues with weight gain or sleep. They just increased his dose.
