I'm taking a very low dose, that is, 5mg EOD ("Every Other Day"). Within 30 days, my numbers went to perfect, Total Ch. dropped from 230 to 165. Bad chol. dropped to 101; Good Chol. 47. I am taking CoQ10 200mg/da., plus extra 100 mg. with Crestor (EOD). After 50 days, no symptoms. I had very unsuccessful attempt with Zocor (bad sleep, back pain).

easy to take, no muscle pain so far.. slight stomach pain. 5mg lowered my numbers from 370 to 260 in 4 weeks.. I am now on 10 mg and my doctor thinks this will do the trick. I am a 60 year old female who just had a 3 way bypass 2 months ago due to a lifelong history of high cholesterol

Comment:
After taking this drug for a month, I'd noticed my left leg aching in the middle of the night. I had no pain while walking during the day, but at night after laying down for a period of time the aching would start again. I discontinued taking the drug, but the aching still remains after several months.

I have notice to have leg craps a night. Sometime hard for me to sleep. It has lowered my cholestrol from 236 to 164. So it has worked. Just concern with the leg pain.
