Crestor Side Effects
Crestor Side Effects to ReportThere are a number of side effects with Crestor that you should report to your healthcare provider. Fortunately, these serious Crestor side effects are usually rare. These include, but are not limited to:
- Signs of liver damage, such as yellow eyes or skin, upper right abdominal pain, dark urine, and elevated liver enzymes (found using a blood test)
- Muscle pain, tenderness, or weakness, especially if you also have a fever or feel ill (which may be signs of serious breakdown of muscle, known as rhabdomyolysis)
- Significant, unexplained changes in the amount of urine you produce (which may be a sign of kidney problems)
- Signs of pancreatitis, such as severe upper abdominal pain accompanied by nausea and vomiting
- Increased blood sugar levels
- Memory loss
- Signs of an allergic reaction, such as:
- A rash
- Wheezing or difficulty breathing
- Swelling of the mouth, tongue, or throat.
It is possible that you may experience some or none of the Crestor side effects explained above. Unfortunately, there is no way for your healthcare provider to know beforehand if you will have side effects from a medicine that you have never tried. Therefore, make sure to let your healthcare provider know if you develop any side effects while taking Crestor. Also let your healthcare provider know if you develop something that "just does not seem right" during treatment with this medicine. While it may not be a side effect, your healthcare provider will be able to diagnose and treat the problem.
