My DH has tried Rosuvastatin and Atorvastatin and both upset his stomach really badly.

He is about to start Ezetimide and wondered how others have found it

Truly awful…sorry.

Oh dear that doesn't sound good, Thanks!

I was put on it as well as Atorvastatin to lower my cholesterol . I had no problems and it worked well. After six months I no longer needed it.

DH is on this as he couldn’t tolerate other statins. He is on on it.

I take it along with the maximum dose of Atorvastatin, no problem so far!

I was prescribed Atorvastatin but had awful side effects. I then tried Simavastatin, same problem. Then Rosuvastatin, same again.

I started taking Ezetimibe in January. No problems so far. I had a blood test last week to see if it had made any difference to my cholesterol. Unfortunately it hasn’t gone down as much as I would have liked, 5.1 from 6.5.

I looked up t my results on line and noticed that my Dr has put ‘no action’ so as I am moving soon and will be changing surgeries I will leave it at that.

So far so good - 3 months in
