The most common statin side effects include:
* difficulty sleeping
* flushing of the skin
* muscle aches, tenderness, or weakness
* drowsiness/ weakness
* nausea and/or vomiting
* abdominal cramping and/or pain
* bloating and/or gas
Which Statin Side Effects Are Serious?
Myositis, which is inflammation of the muscles (heart is a muscle), can be a side effect of statins. The risk of muscle injury increases when certain other medications are coupled with statin use. For example, if you take a combination of a statin and a fibrate -- another cholesterol-reducing drug -- the risk of muscle damage increases greatly compared to someone who takes a statin alone.
Other dangers of statin drugs include other muscle conditions, which can be serious in rare cases. First, there can be statin muscle pain. Known as myalgia, this pain can generally be resolved quickly by discontinuing the medication.
PS) Cholesterol is essential for health, and is required to make up all of your hormones, including your testosterone. You do NOT want low cholesterol, or else your hormones will suffer! What you DO want is the VAP test, and the only thing to be worried about is the count of SMALL DENSE cholesterol, which is caused by Grains & Sugars. So the fix for Small Dense Cholesterol problems is to stop eating grains & sugars !
