Nix the statins. Just say NO, No and No....
leocatzmeow posted:
My experience with statins was a nightmare of pain. I tried every single brand and dosage for over a year and every single one of them gave me severe body aches, memory loss and fatigue. After much research the facts are that statins harm you and just add more problems to your list of health issues. I even tried red rice yeast with the same side effects. My suggestions are EPA in high doses. Vitamin D and C. Research it to learn more. Mayo clinic is great for their knowledge base. Also, if you can tolerate it, magnesium helps body aches. Flax seed (ground or liquid) is also touted as helping people with high cholesterol. There is a wealth of information on the net for those who need to find other ways to lower cholesterol. Good luck to you all and I hope my information helps. Blessings
