Dr. Jacob Teitelbaum is a pioneer in the world of CFS and Fibromyalgia. He reports that moderately high doses of statin drugs have an anti-viral effect that can really help some patients with these problems. This finding is really strange, because statin drugs, which are used to lower cholesterol not infrequently cause severe muscle aching themselves. Sometimes this side effect can be reversed by adding high doses of CoEnzyme Q10 and the adrenal hormone, pregnenolone. If the patient does not have the side effect, he or she might benefit from taking a statin drug, like Lipitor. Much less likely to cause side effects, however, is red yeast, which might have the same benefit without the risk. The latter is my comment.
