Rare, but not zero: Most people have no side effects from "statin" medications. A small percentage of people may get muscle symptoms and a very small number can develop life-threatening muscle cell destruction called rhabdomyolysis. Also uncommon are serious liver problems. The benefits of lowering cholesterol far outweigh the risks. Unfortunately, a misguided public scare has exagerated these risks.
