Negative Effects From Statins
Thank you for spreading the word about these horrific drugs.
I have gone through hell and back with Statins
, and I tell anyone who will listen to stay away from them. Here's what happened to me.
I went to my doctor 4 years ago for a checkup. My cholesterol was 210, my weight was a bit high, but everything else checked out OK.
The doctor recommended statins to bring my numbers below 200, and I agreed. He's the expert right?
I started off on lipitor, and I have to admit, it did work to bring my cholesterol down, but it wasn't all a bed of roses.
I went from a vibrant, active, outgoing guy, to a frail, quiet, weak, exhausted old man, in just a matter of months.
I hit rock bottom on a trip from the US to New Zealand. This is a trip my wife and I had been planning for years, and it turned into a disaster.
After 4 days in Auckland, we had plans to pull roots and move on to the South Island of Christchurch. The problem was, I could barely get out of bed.
The entire trip I was tired and lethargic, but on this day, it hit me so hard I couldn't get up.
I ended up sleeping on and off for almost 16 straight hours. We ended up extending our stay in Auckland, and never made it to the South Island.
Stupid me, I continued to take the statins out of fear, and ended up suffering the entire trip.
Once I got home, I told the doctor my story. He brushed it off, and said it definitely was not the statins.
Deep down, I knew it was the drugs because I never had this problem before.
I was determined to get to the bottom of this situation, so I spent hours on the net searching for information on Statin Side Effects
What I found was that many men suffer the same symptoms of extreme exhaustion, muscle weakness, and lethargy while taking these drugs.
After the research, I finally got up the nerve to fire my doctor, and quit the drugs cold turkey.
It took a few months to get back to 100 percent, but I started to see improvement within just a few days.
Looking back, I'd have to say that dumping statins was one of the best decisions I've ever made in my entire life.Negative Effects From Statins to

I take a Statin to control my cholesterol and do get sluggish and tired, but never put the two together.
My doctor has really put the fear of god into me about my blood lipids, so I'm fearful of going off them.
I would love to hear reports from other men who have gone off statins and haven't dropped dead as a result.
There are reports on this site from men who have decided to go off statin medications due to the negative Side Effects, and the lack of convincing evidence that they will extend life span.
As I've mentioned on my site, low cholesterol is great, but what good does it do you if you're dead anyway.
My opinion is, you'd be better off without them, but it's important that you work with your doctor before you make any decisions.
Many of my site visitors have begun using this Statin Alternative, which you may want to investigate as well.
I make no claims about this product as I haven't used it, but I can say that reports from my site visitors who have, has been very positive.
Good luck to you, and let us know how it goes!
