    this drug should be pulled from the market. I have the lowest dosage possible prescribed to take once a day. I have about 10 out all those severe problems with the drugs as outlined in the side effects section. I have stopped taking the drug.

    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).
