What is your opinion on taken Statin as we hear and read good and bad.
Been taking them for 11 years ever since had stents put in, no problems except that I suffered from a lack of energy. Did a lot of research and found out that statins deplete the body of the enzyme q10. With age the body produces less anyway so I take co-enzyme q10 100mg capsules every morning and have not had any problems. I did clear it with my gp and he showed interest in the research and cleared my use of them. With the first type of statin that I was given I had muscle cramps, my gp switched me to a different type of statin and I have not had problems since.
Taking statins if you have high cholesterol, over 5.0, is better than a heart attack.
Ihave been taking them for 11 years after a stroke now completely recoved i may add, i have had a few issues nothing major just lack of energy now and then but as above rather a little tired now and then is better than a heart attack or stroke.
