I have gone far with my Vytorin. Liptor didn't work, so doctors put me on Vytorin. Although I have muscle pain sometimes, it works for me.

Treatment has been successful, but I saw on the national news that the component(Zetia) may cause cancer, so I stopped taking vytorin. What is your opinion?

I have severe constipation and flushing of the neck and face that is very uncomfortable when using this drug. It works but the side effects are not fun.

Vytorin was able to get me to my goal! FDA posted a new update in January stating that Zetia is safe and other reports were not statistically accurate to report cases of cancer. I think it is Dr. Nissen trying to ruin Merck's reputation because of past conflicts of interest. I am glad there are newer drugs that don't give you the aching and soreness that a higher dose cholesterol agent may give you.

Looking for what side effects there are

Comment from: 55-64 on Treatment for 1-2 years (Patient) Published: November 25

Medicine has reduced my cholestrol level, however, I do have muscle problems with my legs. The muscle problem is minor most of the time.

Vytorin has been very effective for me but I can no longer take the side effects. I was tired all the time, foggy headed and ached from head to toe, felt like a wrung out wash cloth. Leg cramps were the worst and my legs always seemed to want to crumble under me. It also seemed to affect my bladder because the feelings I was having have stopped since I stopped the medication. My doctor wanted me to stay on it but I just can't take it anymore.

I am only 22 years old and I have had high cholesterol my entire life. I was finally put on vytorin to see if medication will help. My cholesterol went from 260 to 164 in about 9 weeks. I have not noticed any side effects at all.

I have been on Vytorin for 3 months it lowered my cholesterol from 124 to 46
