Statins were given pre-market approval in 1987.
Interestingly, deaths attributed to heart failure more than doubled between 1989 and 1997. Interference with the production of Co-Q10 by statin drugs has been proposed as the most likely explanation.
Additionally; drugs that are meant to control cholesterol levels may also be damaging your liver. Several studies indicate that statins cause severe liver damage, especially in dosages higher than 50 milligrams per day. Note; often statin dosages climb up to 80 milligrams per day (prescribed when a person has high cholesterol levels).
Atorvastatin, Simvastatin, Fluvastatin, Lovastatin, and Pravastatin have all been linked to liver injury.
