If you are prescribed a statin for cholestrol and experienced leg pain, what happens if you stop the statin med and later try another? Do the side effects increase by two in the reaction you have to the drug? I am having leg pain issues since the stoppage of the last statin. This has been going on for 2 and 1/2 years. Any suggestions? I haved tried Lyrica and CoQ10. Is thete any other options for me?
