Muscle aches: Statins are usually well tolerated but the most common symptom are muscle aches/stiffness found in extremities which can be seen immediately or with time. I recommend stopping the statin, loading up with co q 10 100mg for one month and then restarting it. Statins use up vital co q 10; if that does not work, try another statin at a lower dose, welchol, (colesevelam) etc. ...Read more
