Okey dokey....no more lovastatin for me. I am, apparently, allergic to it. My arms itch horribly. I couldn't fall asleep last night, due to a TERRIBLE headache & the fact that my arm itched so badly, I couldn't stop scratching it! Today I noticed that I scratched my forearm so hard that I broke some capillaries. Ooops. I am still really, really itchy, & I haven't taken one since yesterday morning. I am going to stop taking it, & see if the itching goes away....then I will know it's the lovastatin & call my doc & see if there's something else I can take. The little info sheet for lovastatin says that "an allergic reaction to this drug is unlikely"....well, that pretty much sums up MY life....UNLIKELY!!!! *grin*
