I've been ill for 2 days.. Fingers semi swollen and every joint in my body in pain. Worse I've ever felt.. No cold no flu.. A year ago my heart had a muscle spasm causing rib cage and middle back pain along with an irregular EKG. They put me on this genetic Lipitor... Since then my stomach fat has lowered into a huge pouch my arms have lost muscle mass and almost all my strength.. I learned today about these statins and how they eat your good C0Q10.. I'm livid!! As a vitamin nut all my life to be given these drugs because the DR says you need them and lose so much in a year, because I'm to foolish to google it and trusted my Dr. I could just scream!! I'm stopping them today!! Don't see where that will hurt me.. And I'm buying Ubiquinol today!! Just wasn sure of dosage as I am not going to take Lipitor again!!! Guess 300mg a day ok?? Plz advise. 6' tall 235# 65 yr old woman!! Usually pretty healthy!!
