The FDA's approval means little. Not only did they approve killer vioxx (55-88,000 deaths) they have "approved" every faulty, fraudulent product ever marketed.

I would have to say that you should be very careful taking any statin type drug.
I was prescribed a statin drug and the side effects were horrible. I had intense pain in my arms and legs and the drug slowly caused me to get weaker and weaker, I later found out out that muscle pain and muscle loss were side effects.
It happens very gradually and I didn't know what was causing it. I quit taking them under the guidance of my doctor and just modified my diet drastically to lower my cholesterol.

I have used for about 3 years and find their products to be reliable and speedily delivered. The Support team are very promt and helpful in solving any issues that arise,caused by my errors not the company's. I was a little sceptical initially about buying generic products rather than brand names. However, the Mens' Health products I have bought have been equally as efficatious as the brand names at a fraction of the cost.

This may be a good news for those who are under maintenance with Lipitor. The expensive price of Lipitor makes it hard for some people to afford it. Although there is still a need to take caution when taking these medications because of the risks of developing diabetes, memory loss and muscle problems. For more Lipitor news click here:
