Effects of Zocor
In an effort to increase my HDL, I take Niaspan & Zocor.....Recently my MD upped the Zocor from 5mgl. to 10mgl....

Last couple weeks, have had more trouble sleeping, usually waking up after a dream (not nightmares, but somewhat vivid dreams)...I've checked out few sites, & saw that statins can cause sleep problems....Have others here had sleep problems while taking a statin?........Thanks

I've been on Zocor for the last 4 1/2 yrs and never had any sleep problems, but everybody is different.  Tell your doctor about it and see what he says/thinks should be done.
