cholesterol drug side effects of weakness

May 14, 2007 at 6:37 pm

I also have gradually increasing cholesterol and am trying to get it down without success. My doctor states he doesn’t want to put me on the usual drugs for this as they all have a rare but serious side effect of muscle weakness. He thought it would be difficult to discern whether this was from the CIDP or the drug. At this time I’m not taking it.

Any thoughts on this??
