Following up on my Feb 4 entry
, my doctor prescribed Crestor
today for my elevated cholesterol level.
Evidently Crestor is a relatively new alternative to drugs like Lipitor
. The side effects of Crestor appear to be about the same, but the doctor told me the most likely side effect I might encounter would be muscle pain.
I have a follow-up appointment in 3 months to see how effective the drug has been.
