I am totally confused. I had a stent put in a blocked coronary artery one year ago. Couldn't take Simvastatin at first but when I tried with small doses over time, the side effects went away. I take Uniquinol to counter the effects of the statin. My LDL is now back to normal and I just ran my first 5k since the stent was put in. I am 70.
If you can take statins or take with Ubiquinol and your bad cholesterol goes down, I fail to see the harm from the statin. Can someone explain or start a conversation? Thanks.
