My doctor told me to take a 75mg aspirin every day. She has also prescribed statins for me. So, it must be safe.

My Dr. just put me on 80 mg of Atorvastatin and I m NOT very happy about it....EVERYTHING I have read about Statin drugs is BAD!! Toxic, poison. One time long ago, I remember on the program THE DR s they had a specialist on and he even said NO ONE should be put on Statin drugs......Also I read that if you are taking them, you need to be on C0q10....she never prescribed those to me and never said a word about them....should I start taking these on my own??

I have not had good luck trying 3 of the statin drugs...leg cramps even taking just 5 mg every other day. This was trying Crestor. Previously had tried Altorvastatin and Pravastin and they both caused more extensive leg cramps. My Dr. has now suggested ezetemibe. Now I m looking for more information on that drug and also the injection Rapatha. Thank you Gail
