Hello, my name is***** I'm happy to assist you with your health concern today. Please allow me a few minutes to read and respond to your question.
I'm sorry to hear that you may be suffering from side effects from statins. The most common side effects include muscle weakness, soreness of the muscles, fatigue,, and occasionally liver inflammation. If you are noticing any of these would be best to stop the statin medication, and follow with your doctor to determine if there any safe alternatives. Statins are not the only class that can be used to treat high cholesterol. Please a me know if you have any additional thoughts, or questions.
