@tricia3 i had problems with this medication but it was ankle swelling. Maybe chat with GP good luck :wink:

I had problems with cccodamoll. Very sleepy and extremely constipated. Lilian

My appetite isn’t great & I suffer a lot of fatigue. Not on lostartin though. I’ve just had some bloods done by my GP to see if there is anything other than my stroke causing issues. Maybe get your GP to check you over xx

@tricia3 thats a good sign try not to worry they just rule out things. I had heart monitor fir 72 hours then a full week so I worried but it was fine. Good luck try and eat a little more if you can. Best wishes Loraine

thanks son has ben visiting thursday, wethome yesterday. he lives in west midlands us in somerset

Good to hear your GP is keeping an eye on you & they’re checking your heart out too with the monitor. Maybe try eating a little & often until your appetite improves. I find seeing a lot of food on a plate puts me off a bit.
Take care xx

thanks did have custard and a few loganberries

I’m not watching the match either. I used to love football but gone off it since my stroke. I am indulging in the Commonwealth Games instead which I love a lot more :grin: I’ve also just indulged in a stone with jam & cream…whoops
Back to my low cholesterol diet tomorrow :blush:

are you not on antivastatin i find lostartin make me tired, is there alternitive to statins

I am on atorvastatin for cholesterol. I have the cholesterol disease which is genetic so apparently I was always destined to get high cholesterol. I am trying to manage the fat I eat though to make sure things don’t get worse.

dont eat enough to get chorlestral, or fatty foods, i was ok before i had stroke, i think its the lostartin causing tiredness
