Put on statins in 2009 (first Zocor, then Lipitor). In June 2012 had severe episode of heart palpitations and chest tightness (ended up in ER). Had EKG, chest x-ray, blood tests -- all normal. But chest tightness, lightheadedness and fatigue symptoms continued for days. After cardiologist visit (including stress test) found no problems with heart, returned to regular doctor for more blood work. Found nothing...

Then based on my own online research I found my symptoms matched up with Lipitor side effects. Stopped Lipitor first week of July... chest tightness and fatigue symptoms are now gone but lightheadedness continues. After more online research, I have begun taking CoQ10 and Milk Thistle this week. No improvement yet. Anyone with similar experiences? How long does it take for the body to eliminate the statins from your system if you've been taking them for 3 years?

It may take anywhere from 4 to 6 weeks for the side effects to completely abate.

I'm very sorry, I've had medications that caused that fuzzy headed/dizziness before and I hated it, so I know its very miserable.

Has it eased up any yet?
