2 doctors agree
In brief: MANY....
Statin drugs such as Mevacor (lovastatin) are way overprescribed &cause muscle weakness, cramps, and weakness, but also cause joint pain, mental slowing, depression, aggressive behavior, and are now implicated in causing cancers, alzheimers, parkinsons disease.
Be sure you are taking coq10 100-200mg a day while on a med like this. Read "the great cholesterol con". Huge controversy that most don't know about.
