I'm not sure, but I have taken Zocor, Crestor and Lipitor and all three have made me so sore in the joints and muscles that I found it hard to even move. Now the Dr. has prescribed the Welchol, I have taken this for +- 3 weeks now and NO side effects.

I have been taking Welchol (6, 625mg/day) for six months and no side effects. I tried three different common statin drugs for years and finally quit when I realized I had lost a great deal of muscle mass. Welchol has helped reduce the cholesterol by about 25%, statins made greater reductions buy at least in my case were debilitating to my body. A close friend had the same experience and he ended up with an arm in a sling due to statins. Once off for a couple of months and on Welchol normal use of the arm returned.
Statins No, Welchol Yes,
