  • You need to monitor Creatinine Clearance because - even though you may not experience muscle pain - all statins can cause rhabdymylosis (a form of muscle wasting) in a percentage of users. The waste product is excreted through the kidneys.

  • Take it in the evening with at least 8 ounces of Water. Take 200 mg of Coq10 Enzyme with it. The Coq10 stopped my leg cramps. A Doctor explained it this way... Theoretically Statins remove CoQ10 from the body. Your body can't produce CoQ10 so you must obtain it from an outside source.

  • Pravastatin lowered my cholesterol numbers significantly, but I'm not entirely convinced of the necessity of long-term, maintenance-dose statins for a person with my blood numbers. Also, at first I would feel tired and slow-witted.

  • Within three days experienced muscle pain. Could only lift half to two thirds the weight (at gym) I could before taking it.. I stopped it after five days.
