Are you CoQ10 and some form of Carnitine?
CoQ10 should be gelcaps (not powdered in a capsule), contain some vitamin E or taken with vitamin E.
Vitamin E should be d-Alpha (natural) and NOT dl-Alpha (synthetic). An even better source of vitamin E is one that contains both tocopherol and tocotrienols and from all eight sources: alpha, beta, gamma, delta.
Good article that discusses "vitamin E": ]http://www.vitamine-factor.com/family.htm]
My husband takes 300 mg daily maintenance dose. When stopping statins he took 600 to 800 mg daily. Some take even higher doses before obtaining benefit.
Carnitine is available in 2 forms... L-Carnitine and Acetyl L-Carnitine. Several on this forum find that carnitine helps with muscles that do not respond to just stopping statins.
Carnitine & CoQ10, an article by Ray Holder (forum member), is very informative. http://www.spacedoc.net/r_holder.html
