There is controversy about it. New research seems to show there are only limited benefits for people who have not actually had a heart attack. They are the most commonly prescribed medicine in the West because of obesity. They do have side effects in a few people:

- muscle pain and damage
- liver damage (less common)
- diabetes (less common)
- memory loss
- interactions with other medicines

So it is a value judgement, do the benefits outweigh the risks? For sure, they ought to be taken only under a doctor's supervision, and any strange symptoms reported.

How do I stop taking statins


There are things you should do.
1. Research statins online. I think there is more and more evidence that these are not good for you and can have serious side-effects.
2. Discuss this with your doctor. If he or she doesn't want to take you off statins, find a new doctor.

We generally don't give medical advice, but I did the same thing with the same results.
The goal for the total number is 200 and LDL is 100.
I'm happy if it is under 250 for me.
And yes a major side effect for statins is joint problems.
