I can't take statins because of liver problems that I got squared away . I drink two cups of Birch Leaf Tea twice a day and take Psyllium capsules three times a day ! My last cholesterol check was real good ! I took Natural Medicines to bring down my enzyme levels in my liver and they did a great job also . My wife takes statins and the only thing that bothers her is the runs all the time . Try the tea and Psyllium ! They work !
The common negative effects of statin drugs includes joint and muscle ache, some spells of nausea and diarrhoea. If you stop this medication you should be on a strict diet to lose weight because if you stick to the normal diet, the cholesterol level will definitely go up again.

go to http://www.spacedoc.com/board (read - NASA flight surgeon) STATINS have done some terrible damage to patients... use with great care. The Spacedoc site is populated by thousands of people who have experienced statin side effects and has plenty of link references for you to get educated; that's what you should spend time doing now. Also try the Stoppedourstatins site - lots of information there as well... just Google it.
