Comment from: retired, 55-64 on Treatment for 1-2 years Published: January 15

My husband has been on this drug for around two years. He has had SEVERE pain in his legs to the point he cannot hardly walk. No one could find out what was wrong with his legs. He has horrible problems with acid reflux, tired all the time, and has problems with holding his urine. I (duh) just read the comments of other people and they have the same symptoms only he seems to have all of them. I hope it hasn't caused permanent damage. He had great blood test results from this drug, but who cares if it is destroying his body.He has had MRIs, been to all kinds of doctors who said his symptoms are not side effects of this drug.I am so thankful I read these comments. He will stop taking it tomorrow! God bless all of you.

I was on Trilipix with Pravastanin. The first month I never noticed much except musle pain. The longer I took it the worse I felt and then started having major physotic problems. They wanted to commit me to a mental instute but I refused but went off of both and all problems went away with in a week. I have now started back on Pravastatin and only have musle pain. No phycotic problems. Trilipix is a very dangerous drug and I recomend that it be taken off the market.

I have taken the medicine three weeks and went back to the doctor and my triglyceide level had dropped from 279 to 149. My total level had dropped to 171. No side effects so far. This is the only medicine for cholesterol I am taking.

After 3 weeks of taking Trilipix have quit taking it. Severe skin rash, extreme muscle pain, nausea, fatigue and headaches. Not worth taking. Be extremely careful as it can cause serious health problems.
