Okay, you medical people......I need help badly. husband has been taking Tricor for four months. He has had ALL kinds of problems ever since and we are just now figuring out it may be side effects. He's had abdominal pain, joint pain, high creatinine level (he had one tumorous kidney removed a year ago, so only had one kidney!!), and all this started because I looked up his medications when he started having muscle-twitching at night so badly that I can't sleep with him. Jeeeez, I have enough problems sleeping on my own! At any rate, he's going to stop taking it...can it be done immediately, or does he have to wean himself. I know, I know, call the doctor....he sees him next week, but he's felt badly ever since starting it. I think he'd rather risk the high triglycerides.
