  • Annoying muscle pain about 3X over ten years, each time in a different muscle zone, which can be discouraging. Hot showers, working pressure pts. = relief.
    Taken for: Hereditary high cholesterol diseases
    Duration taken: Two years or more
  • I had a moderate Cholesterol. This medication brought it down to normal levels. I am using it as a short cut to avoid worrying about what I eat. I am not a foodie, don't eat fast foods, so I had very limited choice for diet control.

  • I would never take this medication without taking a minimum of 200 mg Co Q-10 along with it. I wonder if this would solve some of your muscle pains. I really don't notice any cramping or leg pains or numbness with the 40 mg. I am taking, however my 370 Total Cholesterol has only been lowered to 239. I refuse to go up to 80 mg or add a 2nd drug, Zetia as my Doctor recommended. I will try more exercise and lose weight.

  • It works. I've taken it for a few months and experienced leg aches. I went off for a couple months and all my numbers jumped back up. I've since went back on at just 20mg and they've dropped back to normal levels except for HDL.

  • I didn't expect the muscle and joint pain to quite as pervasive as it was. After taking this for about 6 months I was miserable. I was so apathetic that I didn't care if I lived or died.I wasn't sad or depressed, just felt "bleh".

  • Works very fast and lowers bad cholesterol fast. Only downside would be increased arthritic pain in muscles and joints around previous injury. When off of it arthritic pain goes away. But great to lower cholesterol.
