14 days now with Crestor. Giving it my best shot as I know I need to take something to get cholesterol down. Took Tricor but couldnt handle side effects. Afraid this is going to cause a bad flare. Side effects are: leg cramping, knees hurt. Flu like symptoms. Dry mouth. Please let me know if you had these side effects and if they start to go away. Thanks God Bless Cindy Ps. I love the website AskAPatient.com Gives great feedback from others that try diffrent med.'s. Just type in the med. you are taking and it shows posts of what others experence.
