CoQ10 is a cofactor: coQ10 is a very important cofactor found in the energy producing machinery in all our cells. This cofactor can be depleted when taking certain medications - most especially the statins for cholesterol lowering and can result in fatigue and weakness. Since it takes energy (and coQ10) to make coQ10, if the measured blood levels are suboptimal/ low then it's best to supplement with oral Coq10. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Is CO-Q10 safe to take as a supplement without any current health problems? I believe it is one of the best antioxident.
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.

CoQ10 is essential for health and statins significantly lower CoQ10. I recommend EVERY person taking statins also take CoQ10 to reduce side effects- see https://drsarahbrewer.com/statins-and-co-enzyme-q10

Try all then...: All are proven effective but some individuals respond better to some than others so you need to try all to see what works best for you. Since each reduce migraines but seldom stop them entirely best benefit most likely from taking all. If you go months with no migraine can try stopping one at a time to see what's working. Also try Magnesium taurate or citrate 600 mg/day. See comment for doses: ...Read more

I have stopped taking "ezetrol" for cholesterol can't take statins either due to muscle pain from both, is co q10 @ 400mg the answer to controlling?
Things to consider: Muscle aches, pain, or weakness on statin therapy may represent several things. Very low vitamin d levels, as well as low thyroid function, can predispose people to more statin associated muscle symptoms. If one of these is present it should be treated. Some people can tolerate a much lower dose of statin taken every 2 or 3 days. Coq10 may or may not help muscle symptoms. No problem in trying. ...Read more

I'm hypo-thyroid & just got supplements 4 my swollen glands, it sounds like ALL could b dangerous! Alpha Lipoic Acid,Co Q10,Cod Liver Oil & Selenium!
Hard to say: There has been some benefit on heart in one trial, but trial only involved 420 patients is considered safe, generally, but there's problems with saying that. No one regulates the over the counter supplements to guarantee they contain what they say or whether form it comes in is the same as that in the trial.
