I had 80mg Zocor pushed on me very hard by my cardiologist. The first month I felt like I was hit by a truck. Myopathy, and type 2 diabetes (no family history). I took myself off when I realized what cause it but had 6 following years of muscle pain and wasted 40-50% of muscle mass and strength. Now the pain has finally recede but at about the same time I have discovered bcaa, branched chain amino acids. they aid in protein synthesis in the muscle and also help tp maintain mitochondrial health. They reduce atrogin-1 a gene involved in muscle breakdown which is elevated in statin users. It works for athletes and because it treats muscle soreness going directly to the skeletal muscles. I can now move much easier with a sort of fluidity I had forgotten as it helps the muscle being used to contract properly. Google bcaa, statins and mitochondrial damage.

More sciantific articles on this every month. I would like to hear from others who would give this a try. Also, I would reccomend aestablished company's product like Ajipure or equivalent. Thank you
