If it has been decided that you need this statin it is very important to take this forever because if you stop everything the stop has stop from happening will resume. I am 40 and I will have to take a statin the rest of my life also . Don't start thinking everything is ok just because you feel nothing if you cholesterol is high this is the best and safest way to control it . Diet and exercise will only account for a 10% drop . Life with discomfort is better than death without .
