What are the bad side effects of crestor?

We’ve all been there before. Your doctor hands you a prescription, your local pharmacist is happy to oblige, and before you know it – you’re on the magic pill known as Crestor. It’s supposed to do wonders for lowering high cholesterol levels and reduce the risk of heart attack or stroke. But wait! Is there something else that comes along with those fat-lowering benefits? We hate to break it to you, but yes – there are some not-so-pleasant side effects that come with taking this medication.

In this hilarious piece, we’ll take a deep dive into Crestor‘s side effects and show why laughter may be the best medicine when dealing with its numerous downsides.

What is Crestor?

Before we get ahead of ourselves, let’s first discuss what exactly Crestor is doing in our bodies (and causing so many unfortunate outcomes.) This medication falls under the HMG-CoA reductase inhibitor drug class which helps lower blood cholesterol levels in patients by inhibiting an enzyme responsible for creating cholesterol within the liver.

But hey – who cares about how medical jargon works when we could instead talk about its funny side-effects?

Muscle Pain & Weakness

If you thought getting up off the couch and walking was already hard enough – try doing it after taking Crestor! This medication causes muscle pain and weakness as time progresses.


One could argue there are moments where dizziness is part of our everyday lives especially when we’re stuck in a relationship with awful partners or dealing with way too much work on their plate!! However these situation differ from being affected by Crestor relating to dizziness in any instance. Sudden jerks/spinning motions for lack of better words define this symptom.
