I was taken off of statins because of muscle aches. As I mentioned in a previous email, I started on fish oil, added more veggies, more exercise, less meat. My cholesterol went down w/this natural method, but my doctor wanted it lower so put me on Zetia. Now I have muscle aches again. Have any other readers experienced muscle aches w/Zetia? Thank you!
