I received a letter from my GP this morning saying that they are going to redice my dose of Simvastatin by 50%, from 40mg to 20mg. I take this med for high BP & I also take meds for various other conditions, like osteo-arthritis, gout & fibro. The letter states that, taking this med with my other meds, may cause muscle problems. I have been on this med for a few years & have experienced chronic tiredness & fatigue. Fibro is a muscle disease anyway, so this Simvastatin could be making it a lot worse. I find it so hard to move around, my muscles, especially on my legs, are very week. I am undergoing physio & hydrotherapy to strengthen them ready for knee/hip surgery. If this Simvastatin IS weakening my muscles, then I am fighting an uphill battle here. Has anyone else had this problem, or had this letter sent to them? I appreciate any input. Thanks.
