1. Yes, it is important to take it to lower the high cholesterol levels.
2. Its common side effects include abdominal discomfort, muscle pain or tenderness, muscle weakness and liver dysfunction (liver injury).
3. She seems to have developed liver injury, so I advise her to stop taking it and an alternate effective but a safer cholesterol lower medication would be prescribed by her treating doctor.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
