    I started taking red yeast rice caps six weeks ago at 2 x 600mg a day but got bad pains in legs and wrist just like statins, I manage to take 600mg every other day with coQ10 which helps the pains a bit & helps lower my blood pressure. My doc did cholestrol blood test and said it had returned to normal 3.8. RYR seems to work although it cost a fair amount money.

    I was put on red yeast rice for my cholesterol, it raised my triclycerides extremely high......then I went to Niaspan er with red yeast rice, the numbers went higher.....can't take the red yeast rice, tried twice, it doesn't work for me. I won't give it a 3 rd try

    Works Too many side effects for me. RYR taken to lower my cholesterol -it worked dropped from 250 to 158 but the muscle pain in the legs and shoulders and tingling in my hands and feet is not a good trade. I also experienced some dizzy spells and vision issues, but the worse effect is lack of energy and ambition. I took 600MG once a day for over 2 years before I figured out the side effect link t ...

    For all that are waiting for the pain to go away and worried it wont I can say that it did for me. I only took it for a few days and I got the thigh pains. It was obvious it was from them and I didn't even know pains could happen from it or statins. (This was quite a long time ago). It took a week and it left and no I wont take that crap.
