Reviews for CoQ10

Mamaw · Taken for less than 1 month May 6, 2021

For Dietary Supplementation: “I started taking CoQ10 without any research. After a few days of y'all 100mg, I was ill; diarrhea, cramps, vomiting for over 25 hours straight. Then dizziness & weakness now it is the 3 rd day. Doctor and I thought food poisoning because of me eating at a buffet. But it just dawned on me to read up on this supplement. I have kidney disease and take thyroid medication. Now, I just want to know how long before I feel better and the CoQ10 get out of my system?”

For Dietary Supplementation: “Greetings I've read a bit about CO Q10 strengthening the heart, I have just begun, three weeks, taking 300mg to 500mg per day ~ Well, it seems to be helping, I'm having, so far, no tachycardia ( heart beat up to 170 beats per min) and no great fluctuation of heart rate 37 to 90 bpm ~ I've also been taking magnesium 400mg or more per day ~ I've read of hypomagnesemia that has to do with the electrical firing of the heart We'll see, I've been seeing a cardiologist he is hinting at a pacemaker ~ which I would not like at all ~ We'll see, my heart seem to be behaving its self for the last three weeks now I have gone into a clinic and had two IVs of magnesium as well I'm 82 ~ I have been a profession athlete, I am now way out of shape but have begun to correct that Good luck and God be both you and I”

A Person with Migraines May 5, 2020

For Dietary Supplementation: “I started taking CoQ10 after reading about studies that showed it helps reduce migraines. I've had moderate/severe migraines for years now, sometimes every day, less frequently in winter months. I started taking coq10 in winter so I didn't realize the difference until I ran out. It's hot where I live now, about a week of not taking it my migraines got bad again. I wasn't having them when spring came, then a week after not taking it with no other changes I suddenly was, so I think it's safe to say the CoQ10 works for me. It seems to take longer to start helping than it does to stop, it slowly got better over time without me noticing the first time, and it took a few weeks to reduce them again. I take 200mg a day twice a day, but started at 200mg once a day to be safe. I will say that this should be taken with caution after some research on brands, the FDA doesn't regulate them and each brand can perform differently. Hope this helps someone.”

For Dietary Supplementation: “The first day I took this I experienced breathing difficulty and light headedness, and somewhat dizzy. I did not realize it was the supplement causing it. I saw my doctor and they could find nothing wrong. Day two same thing shortly after taking. That's when I researched the product here and discovered the possible side effects, of which affected me. My blood pressure was elevated rather than low. I feel fine when not taking this product.”

For Dietary Supplementation: “I started taking CoQ10 since my gastroenterologist recommended it. I started taking it after I did my research and my vision is better, little to no migraines, muscles don't ache as much, has helped my extreme fatigue. I also have water retention and struggle with high glucose it has helped both issues. I'm taking 100mg now but going to up the mg to 200mg.”

For Dietary Supplementation: “I am a heart patient since 5 years and implanted pacemaker since 1 year. I decided to try coenzyme q10 for heart health and immunity etc.. I have normal bp 140/70 and sugar on control up to 150 units My doctor said it is a waste since it does nothing. Good reviews are posted by their own people or promoters. I took it for 5 days. Believe me was driven to the ground in the 4th day. My BP went down to 90/60 and my sugar came down to 90. I was dizzy fainting and all sorts of breathing and fatigue cold sweats. My heart was stopping and skipping etc... I threw the bottle out I in my thrash bin. and I'm back to normal now. Wonder why it is not launched in pharmacies if it was so good. Guys don't get deceived by the reviews and posts. Don't ever take coq10. How can these money greedy donkeys introduce something that can destroy you. Please pass it on to all you know, and if possible to WHO and other medical control facilities. Thanks.”

For Dietary Supplementation: “I practice cycling on a regular basis (200 miles a week) and started taking CQ10 because it's supposed to make your muscles produce more energy, but I've been feeling sluggish for a week now, the first day I felt tired, I thought it was regular fatigue and rode easy for 4 days but I still feel sluggish and without the energy that I always have in my rides. I've seen reviews of people that cause them to feel tired and maybe that is what CQ10 is causing me. I will stop taking it and will come back to post again.”

For Dietary Supplementation: “So far, this CoQ10 has really worked in preventing my horrible migraines. In combination of taking it with multi B vitamin, magnesium, and butterbur, I have gone from having 20 migraines to 3 or less a month- depends on the weather. I was skeptical, but the combination really works and doctor recommended. Just try it.”

For Dietary Supplementation: “I took this supplement awhile back with hope that it would help me with my migraines, I would have them for weeks at a time. So I took 200 mg everyday, I don't recall if i took it with or without food, but definitely took it during the day for at least a month. By the time I met with a neurologist my migraines were almost gone. He told me to stop taking it as he didn't know enough about, so I did, but nothing has worked so well since, so now I'm going back on. I believe that studies have been updated well enough. :-)”

For Dietary Supplementation: “I'm taking CoQ10 for metabolic support, prevent migraines and heart disease. Doing well helping reduce debilitating migraines; had to reduce dose from 400 to 200 after a series of other medical issues to manage blood pressure... It just doesn't take as much as it used to for my body to achieve the optimal effect for my heart health.”

For Dietary Supplementation: “Bought a 30mg dose, the smallest I could find They say to try the smallest dose if you are starting something new. I took mine after a heavy breakfast which usually makes me sleepy. After just 10 minutes I felt my heart rate speed up, like a panic attack was coming, I had a little bit of difficulty breathing as if I was catching my breath from a quick run. I thought it worked like a vitamin, not like an adrenaline injection! Good thing I started with the lowest dose. Scary experience, not sure if I wanna take another dose (this was recommended by my doctor for better sperm quality) Stuff works, for sure but safety? I don't know man I'm giving an overall 5/10”

For Dietary Supplementation: “I started taking CoQ10 because I heard it was important to take it if you were taking a statin. I started feeling very tired and had severe diarrhea lasting for hours. I don't know if it would do anything for my heart, liver or my migraines because I can't tolerate it.”
