  • From this study (2 years ago):

  • I took simvastatin for 2 monts before swithing to Lipitor on the advice of my doctor. I plan to stop taking the Lipitor for a 1-2 weeks and start taking COQ10 suppliment (200mg). I hope to see a decrease in the frequency of my arrhythmia events. I may then restart the Lipitor while continuing the COQ10 to see if this combination prevents the reoccurance of the arrhythmia events.

    Please do not stop Lipitor abruptly; the rebound could kill or at least badly harm you - and rebound typically will not be noticed by the patient until 2-1/2 or 3 weeks. And CoQ10 is manufactured by your body as a result of the melanolate metabolic pathway so it does not interact with anything. You will be deficient if you are a senior citizen or on statins. Take it; it cannot hurt you. Dosage of 200mg twice daily is fine. I take 1200mg daily, but that's because of statin damage.

  • It is interesting that my brother-in-law and I, and a friend and his wife take Lipitor and we all have an arrhythmia or A-fib. Makes one wonder about the real percentage of people that that have this type of heart problem fromtaking Lipitor.
