Hello -

No you do not need to stop taking vitamin C.

However, just be aware that there is no real good medical evidence that this will help to prevent the muscle pains from the Statin medications you are using. It may help, but it may also do nothing.

Best of luck.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
