Have you discussed this with your doctor?  I was changed to Pravastatin recently. You can google the warnings and side effects of that one.  I also take Tricor for my hyperlipidemia. But that is a fenofibrate, not a statin. Have you ever tried the grandfather of statins, Lipitor?  Talk to your doctor and get the straight answers.  Take care, Ally
