Coenzyme Q 10 to manage myopathy/ muscle pain for those taking statins

This story was from an article we caught in the Reuters Health service back in June, 2007. It reported on an article from the American Journal of Cardiology.

Here’s a quote pulled from the original AJC article:

“Coenzyme Q10 supplementation (100 mg/day for 30 days) decreased muscle pain by 40% and improved the interference of pain with daily life activities by 38%,” the authors conclude. “These findings suggest that coenzyme Q10 may be beneficial for patients using statins by ameliorating myopathic symptoms and improving subjects’ well-being and functioning in daily activities.”
