I have had raised cholesterol for years and was changed to Vytorin about 12 months ago. I am now on 10/80. I have been under a neurologist for years about "unexplained white matter" on my brain. For the past few months when med was raised, I have had tingling in arms legs and down the side of my face. I feel very unbalanced and "off with the fairies" at times and know that I am just not right. Thinking and memory has been effected. I am now looking at medication (Vytorin) and have stopped taking it to see if these symptoms improve. Is there anybody else out there who has experienced the same symptoms on these meds.? I am at my wits end

Hello, Marg! How are you?

Those can be side effects of Vytorin, as reported by the FDA. You may also experience nausea, dizziness, headache and joint/muscle aches.

However, there is a risk that some of your symptoms could be to some other health issue, so you should have them checked out to be sure.

Has anything changed, since you stopped taking it?

Are you sure these are not symptoms, of an illness and not a side effect, from this drug? Sounds like MS, to me. I would suggest getting a Neurologist, that specializes in Multiple Sclerosis, if your present Neuro doesn't specialize in MS. These are some of the exact same symptoms I have with MS. I, too was seeing a Neuro, for years, who refused to address these same issues in myself. I now see a Neuro, who specializes in MS. My old Neuro let me suffer, for a long time, years, before I changed to one, who specializes in MS. Old Neuro refused to dx, or even listen to the possibility of this being MS, even when another Dr. sent him diagnostics, that he did himself [a Spine specialist], and dx me with MS, but my Neuro was the one, who needed to do this. Good luck.
