Lipitor
There are plant sterols that are natural way to lower cholesterol. Statins are drug companies biggest money maker and poison to your bodies.

Why don't physicians tell you to take co q-10 while on statins. I refuse to take any statins after experiencing muscle pain, diverticulitis, and now neuropathy in my Hands oand feet. Think about it, the heart is a muscle. So you are also damaging your heart to save your arteries. Doesn't make sense does it.

Weakness and muscles soreness in arms, legs and thighs. Thighs unually sore and weak going up stairs and hills. Also felt tired alot. Have not taken Lipitor for 2 yrs now, on Livalo, same results although not as sever. Now paying highly for it; as it is not covered under my ins plan. I think statins are an excellent drug, but lots of side effects come with. We each have to decide what works best for us.
