Question: About nine years ago, my wife was given a statin drug. She awoke one morning with no memory, and has remained this way since. She is now 84. Am I wasting my time and money with all the different vitamins I am giving her?
Dr. Blaylock's Answer:
Reports of such terrible neurological side effects as your wife has experienced continue to mount, and statin-prescribing doctors continue to ignore the scientific literature that the main problem is depletion of brain coenzyme Q10.
The irony of your wife’s case is that she was given a statin drug at age 75. Numerous studies have shown that elevated cholesterol past age 65 does not significantly contribute to heart attacks or strokes, and lowering cholesterol levels at this age has no benefits but many complications.
A highly absorbable form of CoQ10, called Vesisorb CoQ10, in a dose of 100 mg three times a day, might help. The greatest benefit is when it is given early.
