I am a 72 years of age male, and have been on 40mg Simvastatin for about 3 years. for the last year or so I have been concerned as to my general health which seemed to be going down the pan, weakness in my arms difficulty in walking,aching joints, I found myself climbing the stairs in a sideways fashion as my knees would hurt so much. I could not lower myself into the bath I would just fall in, and getting out was difficult also. I was getting to the stage when I thought if this is old age well I have not got much to look forward to . Then I started to hear things being said about the side effects of Simvastatin, so I stopped taking them some 2 months ago, and the improvement in my well being is amazing, When I next see my doctor I will tell him where to put the Simvastatin.
