rahod, congrats on your numbers. You are so knowledgeable about this stuff. I wish i could take statins (or anything else without side effects) and lower my cholesterol. I have tried lipitor 20mg and 10mg. I always stay on for a month and then the muscle pain kicks in. I've read your previous posts and it seems you like crestor alot. I would like to try lipitor again, do you think if i added cQ10 that i would still get the muscle pains.

As you may remember, im diabetic and my numbers are way too high. I said lipitor becuz i have 3 bttls left. I also have 2 bttls of zetia left.

Your numbers, especially trigs, ldl and ttl cholesterol are what im looking to achieve.
My drs (gp and endo) will not put me on crestor.

Why won't they put you on Crestor? If they won't, find a Dr who will! It's certanly worth a try, given your problems with Lipitor. Since Crestor is more effective per dose than Lipitor, you can try 5mg (1/2 pill) to start and go from there if required. The fact you still have other meds left over should not enter into your decision. You should take 100mg of Q10 daily with any statin, but I don't know if that help with muscle pain. Good luck!
