Can you tell us more? Like: why were you originally prescribed it--high cholesterol or something else? What symptoms have changed and does your doctor have any idea why? Do you take CoQ10 along with it as they are often prescribed together as statins lower levels of CoQ10. CoQ10 itself sometimes helps patients by itself. I take red yeast rice which is a low dose statin, but haven't noticed any effect on symptoms. Thanks!
At the start of September, I was needing to have 13 hours of sleep or bedrest in every 24 hour period. it is hard to believe that I am now sleeping for no more than 8 hours in any 24 hour period. I no longer need any bedrest apart from normal sleep.
As you can see, I have only had 1 response so far. Statins are usually used as a medication to treat high cholesterol, and have many names. As a lot of people have high cholesterol, could it be that you are taking a statin that is helping with your ME/CFS without knowing it?
Some examples are:
lovastatin (Mevacor, Altocor)
simvastatin (Zocor), and
