Statins and Fatigue

Kristen Sparrow • July 17, 2012

I had missed this report from June showing that statins can cause fatigue in some patients, especially women.  I touched on this subject here, about statins sometimes causing problems with exercising.
“Many observational reports have suggested that statin drugs cause fatigue in some people, and now a randomized trial has found further evidence for the effect…
 But as a group, those on statins were significantly more likely than those on placebo to report that their overall energy level and their energy on exertion had declined. The effect was more apparent in women than in men.”
