While it was my insurance company that made the "bean counter" decision to change statins, I am very glad to get off of Lipitor. The muscle aches are the main problem. At first in the legs,now arms, back and even chest. It seems the cold weather even makes it more noticable.
I will say this for Lipitor, my numbers are down:
Total-154
HDL-46
LDL-82
Trigly.-130

Is this pretty good? I had asked for homocystine levels to be checked-but was only told all was well. I'm hoping that Zocor will not continue the muscle pain problem. I'm on 20mg now. I wantedto just get off of them but my Dr. said he didn't think the statins caused my muscle pain....getting older. I'm 53, 6' 2" and about 198 pounds, do not smoke.

Does anyone know of any group of vitamins or supplements that would work as well as statins BUT without the side effects? I did start takin the COQ10. My Dr. said that it was not necessary, but that it wouudn'y hurt either.
Who knows.

Ah those doctors they crack me up with stupid statements like that . They know darn well statins can cause all kinds of muscle aches , pains and other problems . Hope you are getting quarterly CPK tests to test for problems specially if you have a lot of sore muscles.
