What this also means is that when you artificially lower your cholesterol with a statin drug, which effectively reduces the bioavailability of cholesterol to that plaque but doesn't address the root problem, your body is not able to create the cholesterol sulfate your heart needs anymore, and as a result you end up with acute heart failure...Backing up this theory is the fact that in the first decade statin drugs were on the market, from 1980 to 1990, the incidence of heart failure doubled. And heart failure keeps going up right along with the increased use of statins.

Besides the direct harm caused by the drug, it's also important to understand that cholesterol sulfate is essential for babies in utero, and this is one of the reasons Dr.

The patients ditching statins 39due to painful side effects - Daily Mail

Published: 18:36 EST, 20 July 2012 | Updated: 08:12 EST, 21 July 2012 Painful side effects from taking statins are far more common than experts thought.

Experts pointed out this is a small study of just 1,074 people and urged those who experience side effects to talk to their GP before giving up the drugs.

3,000 had high cholesterol. Just over 1,000 took statins and 104 had muscle pain, fairly equally split between men and women, of all ages beyond 50.

'Side effects': Rosuvastatin, brand name Crestor pills is a statin drug for treating people with high cholesterol.

Share what you think.

Merck, Sharp and Dohme, the drug firm which first developed simvastatin, said it was ‘not surprising’ the rate of symptoms in the ‘real-life’ study differed from those in controlled trials.

The comments below have been moderated in advance.

But a small number suffer from serious side effects.

They say this is a much larger proportion than shown by clinical trials of common statins, which suggest less than 1 per cent of patients will suffer muscle pain and weakness.

Some studies recommend all over-50s should take them.

They said lower incidence of muscle pain in clinical trials may be due to such trials excluding high-risk patients, such as those with a history of pain.

The Heart UK charity said the fact one in three people who had side effects were ditching the drugs was ‘worrying’

The researchers cold-called more than 10,000 people, of whom nearly.

Side effects can range from mild headaches, pins and needles and nausea, to memory loss, sleep disorders, and depression.

Dr Nigel Capps, of Heart UK, said: ‘They must contact their GP who may take them off the statin to make sure that is what’s causing the pain, rather than another condition.’

We are no longer accepting comments on this article.

Researchers found one in ten people who took statins suffered side effects, and 30 per cent of those said they had stopped taking them as a result, which could put them at increased risk of a heart attack or stroke.

Experts say no one should come off statins of their own accord, as it could put their lives at risk.

Muscle pain is one of the most common complaints.

FDA correctly identifies risks from statins. March 10, 2012. What does a knee surgeon know about statins' side effects? Plenty, after seeing scores of patients.

Many believe lowering cholesterol will decrease their risk of heart attack and stroke, and allow them to live longer. But nothing could be further from the truth for most people. Patients frequently experience side effects and have simply been switched to another drug in the same category. Very few told me they were informed of the true absolute benefit or given other lifestyle options as a first line of treatment.

They were just relieved to have an improved quality of life once they decided to give up statins — against the advice of their prescribing physician.

What does a knee surgeon know about statins' side effects? Plenty, after seeing scores of patients improve their memory, strength, vigor and sex drive after stopping these popular drugs.

The FDA was correct in identifying a risk that many were aware of for decades; in my opinion and experience, side effects' numbers far exceed those reported to the FDA, since hundreds of my patients over the years complained of fatigue, memory difficulties and weakness.

How many patients on statins are given advice to take Co-Q 10 by their prescribing physicians? Sadly, very few in my experience.
