These meds do have a reputation for causing additional muscle pain, because it can deplete coQ10.
When my cholesterol was getting a little borderline, knowing i would fear taking this med, i turned to an alternative over the counter. It dropped my cholesterol 30 points in a couple months, with no side effect.
There was a recent report televised, that drs now know cholesterol is not the heart culprit that once was believed.
I feel that where you can, research alternative help first. If not you can always add the med.
Like most with fibro, i take medications because i have to. But feel like docs can be quick to write a script for issues that can be handled another way.
Just my personal opinion .
