Frequent Urination from Simvastatin
| Malcolm
Increased statin dose on doctor's advice and urination often really urgent began especially at night. Intervals are always accurate every 3 hours.
I am not diabetic so that cause was ruled out. My view is that given what I read are the benefits, this side effect will not concern me too much as it is simply a trade off.

Experienced frequent urination. Stopped taking medication and frequency decreased substantially. Now normal.
