skin itching from Lovastatin

I have been on Lovastain for three years. My eyes are itching like crazy. I itch all over at night. Has anybody else had this problem? ## Hello, Sherry! How are you? I don't see anything about the itchy eyes, but this medication is reported by the FDA as being known to cause the all over body itching. Other side effects are listed as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache and joint/muscle aches. Are you on any other medications? If the body itching just occurs at night, it could be due to a circulation issue. I used to experience with certain blood pressure medications that I was taking. Have you had this checked out, yet to get a diagnosis?

round pink pill scored on one side

I found half a round pink pill scored on one side and the numbers that I can see ends in a 6 over something that ends in T ## This sounds like it may be difficult to verify having only half a tablet... but I did come across a round pink/peach-ish colored pill marked with TEVA on one side and 926 on the other...(no score line) however, after seeing a photo of it, if it were to be broken in half, you'd have one side that had a "T" and on that same half there would be the number "6". It's said to be identified as a 10mg Lovastatin tablet manufactured by Teva. Maybe if you see an image of it on google you'll be able to tell if the color is accurate to what you have? I hope this helps!

white round pill half moon 635

There is a half moon looking marking on one side, and the numbers 635 on the other side - the pill is yellowish white. ## The closest thing which I have found so far (based on the "half moon looking mark") is Lovastatin 40 mg, manufactured by Actavis. Their pill is described as "yellow, round, flat-faced, beveled edge tablet ... Actavis logo on one side; 635 on the other side" [1]. If you see the manufacturer's logo at the top left of their site you will see that it does resemble a half moon. I hope this information helps! Please let me know if you have any other details which could be used as a clue. [1] Actavis - Lovastatin
