Ask Dr. Gott 4/3

DEAR DR. GOTT: I recently read about the 54-year-old person who was taking Zocor, and who complained to his doctor he was having muscle weakness. Well, I had been taking Zocor for two years, and a year ago my doctor changed me to lovastatin. For three months, I complained to my doctor of severe cramps, and sizzling in both legs and hands. I could hardly walk and couldn't go upstairs. I wasn't able to exercise and had pain across my lower back, into the hip area.

I cannot say his name without smiling.
