Finally get to see my gp tomorrow for my decision to take statin or not.
Have seen rheumatologist and toxicologist and between them scared me into believing I should start statins. I take methotrexate for past 18 years 20 mg and plauqnil and rivaroxaban (since first & only isolated afib & tia Feb 2017). my nutritionist says don't stress your liver which to me says don't take statins. I take co codamol every night, already have BPPV so already dizzy fairly regularly. my RA gives me bone and muscle ache (for past 38 years) it's a huge decision and I can't reduce my quality of life further. been reading reviews from statin users and they say opposite from doc, in that the painful side effects of statins do not just disappear when you stop taking them as the doc would have me believe. would coq10 help whether I take statins or not? any opinions of users of above meds would be really helpful. it's stressing me not being able to make this decision. so many side effects which I already get doesn't seem to be going in the right direction. help please
