For a complete list of statin drugs, click on "Links" in the left hand menu and select: * Drug Package Inserts *

While taking a statin, did you experience:
* Shoulder/neck or muscle pain?
* Difficulty turning over in bed?
* Difficulty walking (heavy legs)?
* Frequent fatigue for no apparent reason?

Did your doctor ever tell you:
* To take CoQ10 when taking statins?
* All the possible side effects that might far outweigh any benefit?
* Statins can make you exercise intolerant?

When you complained of muscle pain: Did your CK/CPK test come back NORMAL? AND your doctor said statins are NOT your problem; must be arthritis? Old age?

"Some" serious statin complications:
* Rhabdomyolysis: Disintegration of muscles, severe cases can lead to kidney failure & death.
* Elevated Creatine Phosphokinase [CPK]: Enzyme released due to damage of the muscles of the heart, body & brain
* Memory Loss, often mistaken for Alzheimer's
