It is a harmless med: CoQ10 is not proven to be of great usefulness for any medical condition. It is a good antioxidant but it is costly. Unless spending money is not a problem, I would not encourage you to take it. I think it is quite costly. Moreover its dose and duration of use for any medical use is not well defined.
