    There isn't much known about statins causing cystitis. 

    Are you sure statin is causing it. 

    There are many other causes of cystitis: 

    A defect in your bladder tissue, which may allow irritating substances in the urine to pass through your bladder.

    Something in the urine that damages your bladder.

    Changes in the nerves that carry bladder sensations, so pain is caused by events that are not normally painful (such as your bladder filling with urine).

    A type of allergic reaction.

      It could be a side effect, I've read that statins have many. Have you read the leaflet in the packet to see if it's one of them? You can get info from a pharmacist too and ask him/her about the yellow card to report side effects of drugs, (UK)! Speak to pharmacist first if you can't get a GP appointment, I'm sure they can help you. Good luck. x rolleyes
