Hi....., Like all medications, statins can cause side effects. However, most people tolerate them well and don't experience any problems....some of the common side effects includes headache, sore throat, muscle amd joint pain, running nose etc....., Statins can occasionally cause muscle inflammation swelling and damage. Consult your doctor if you experience muscle pain, tenderness or weakness....
