Hi, my name is Cam. I'm from Australia. I started taking Lipidil (145mg) at age 35 for high cholesterol. I'm 52 now (2017) and still taken this drug. I developed a symptom 2 years ago which my Dr has dismissed as muscular related on my right hand side under my rib cage. I'm obviously not a Dr but feel it has something to do with my liver. I believe this because when I occasionally drink alcohol, I noticed the pain more. I don't know if this is a coincidence but reading the side effects of Lipidil on eHelathme it appears liver problems is a common side effect.
Wondering if anyone else has experienced the same?

Hi I have been on lipidil for nearly a year now and I am so depressed as I have packed on 10 kilos
This is the heaviest that I have been and it doesn't sit right with me. I have asked my doctor and he assures me that it's not the tablets. I have not changed my diet or anything else. Weight started creeping on when I started lipidil. Has anyone experienced the same thing
