Ilene,

Thank you so much for the kind words. We are here for each other...it's a hard journey but together with our friends and family we can climb to the top. You are so right around the Dr..not really testing the pills prior to giving them to patients.

Do you really think the Dr knows anything about these pills? They are given samples from Phamacy reps that are young, thin and wear high heel that make noise. The Dr does not take these pill but relies on his or her patients that do take them to tell them whats up....

I know I mentioned that I was UNABLE to call the Dr and talk to her. That is why I posted this question. Thanks Joanna for caring enough to read what I wrote and send me mail. I will be there for you Joanna. Please call on me.

It's very hard to really know what you medication in doing when you are on more than one at a time. For me I take 8 different medications a day for various things. Right now I am trying to lower my Cholesterol and High Blood Pressure just to elevate those three meds. You don't realize when you are younger what happens to your body and we are slowly paying for it now. At least I am. So my goal is not to just lose weight but to learn a whole new way of eating, living, and exercising, so I can enjoy life a little longer and better.

I cannot help but I hope you feel better. Maybe diet is better for you since pills have those side effects

For a healthier life!

Hi Missllene;

Just wanted to touch base with you and welcome you to the team.

I am considering lap-band surgery in the near future however so far I am trying to lose what I can on my own. I can tell you this about Crester, I was taking it and it gave me a lot of side effects. My stomach cramps were so bad I felt like I was constipated a lot of the time. I had to change my medication which I am now on Simvastatin for my cholesterol. I feel a lot better but I think I the side effect is gaining weight. My doctor says no but it seems to me I am.

Good luck and let me know how it turns out.

Hello, I am MissIlene. I just joned here. I am aslo a coleader in two lapband surgery groups. I lost 89 lbs and still have cholesterol. I eat mainly protein. No red meat. But I am on Crestor and I have noticed that I feel terrible. Can anyone tell me if they also had this problem with Crestor? I have pain in my toes and my legs. I hardly ever feel very well.

I am not able to "call my Dr" I am going to a clinic and it does not work that way. Today I cut my pill in half. I will try that - and if that doesnt help, I will say goodbye to these pills. I think that this is a side effect from the pills. I am very concerned about it also.

Please can anyone help me. Thanks.
