Co-Enzyme Q 10 (100 mg daily) Stops Statin Leg Pain

Hi, I'm taking 20 mg Atorvastatin and my legs were aching. My great Cardiologist told me that statin medications rob the body of the supplement Co Q 10 and taking 100 mg a day would alleviate the problem. I take now Co-enzyme Q 10 100 mg daily and it totally stopped the leg pain. Hope this is helpful to some.

@kanaazpereira My mom has severe 2ndary/functional mitral regurgitation and has been suffered from on and off CHF. I am looking for info how much it would cost for her to have the repair or replace surgery done in Mayo Clinic. Can someone with that info reply to me. She does not have insurance. Thanks in advance.

I need to add that it's best, essential, to be sure, to get the "Ubiquinol" (not ubiquinone) form of C-enzyme Q 10. Just check the label. Ubiquinol is bio-available and the other not for everyone. Feel better.

I buy my coq10 at vitacost.com, but make sure you get Ubiquinol the most absorbable form.

@lioness Hello,I too have pain in my thighs. I believe its from fibromyalgia. I was diagnosed in 2012. I take Cymbalta, Lyrica and Baclofen which helps control most of the pain. I also have bulging discs in C4. MRI shows that the disc in C5 is leaking gel and irritating my spinal cord. I have had chronic neck pain for over 20 years and have been on and off opoids for years. Right now I take Percocet.

I'm not familiar with that. I take magnesium with my calcium pill to get additional magnesium. I had gastric bypass in 2007 so I don't absorb food or medicines the same as others.

Can you tell me about Fibro Malic?

Fibro Malic for me is great for fibromyalgia. It's all natural ,no prescription meds .We need more Magnesium then the normal person you take 3in morning and 3 at night Ingredients:Vit,C@B6 Magnesium Hydroxide,Malic Acid,MSM all for joints musules,connective tissue Olive leaf extract adding at night 1more Mag.it's a broad spectrum complex and 1additional B6 100 mg.1Tramadol at bedtime and 1Tums for sleep It take awhile for your to adjust before you notice alot of benefit.I've been on F..M over a year Vitacost has everything I like them the best. Good luck

I,'ll reply about Cymbalta ,had mental block when on it so Dr took me off it Lyrica didn't help me with Pain I have L2fracture and Buldging disc so that's why Im onTramado! and Meloxiam for pain for In flamation drink ginger-turmeric tea

Please do beware that CoQ10 should be used without peperine which is put in some CoQ10 to help absorption. It actually can affect the absorption of you meds. with me it was Verapimil it interferes with the absorption and I then had BP issue and went back into Coroanry Spasms.
