    extreme cramping with statins before using. Now I take 200 mg daily at bedtime and have not had any cramps, weakness, or muscle pain.

    Since going on C0Q10 I have been having strange muscle problems in my left upper leg area, similar to being bruised BUT I have no bruises. I am quitting the COQ10 to see if it clears up

    Comment:
    Taking for muscle issues with long term statin use. 200 mg daily helps reduce symptoms, just added 100 mg Ubiquinol to CoQ10 already used due to flare up of symptoms and getting side effects again of nausea, loss of appetite, caffeine-like nervousness. Will ride out or maybe separate doses. Does help muscle issues. Have developed thyroid nodules, benign, with no family history.

    Well, not myopathy (muscle pain) -- but muscle weakness. While cycling I realized my strength was much reduced. After discovering that statins like the Crestor that I take reduce CoQ10 as part of the same process it used to reduce cholesterol -- and Coq10 is needed to produce the ATP that muscles use for their energy, I tried it. I saw an immediate and very significant increase in strength. ... Show Full Comment

    Comment:
    Prescribed 200mg/day for statin induced muscular pain. It did reduce some of the severity, but the longer I stayed on the simvastatin the more the simvastatin seemed to take over until the coq10 was no longer effective. Tried this with Pravastatin too... It only helped a little for a short time. It took weeks to reduce the muscle pain to a tolerable level after stopping the statin.
