Not everyone that takes statins will develop side effects, however, although some may be at greater risk than others.
Those most at risk of side effects include people that take a variety of medication for high cholesterol, females, people over 80 years old, and those with a smaller body frame.
If you currently take statins, you should also try and cut back on the amount of grapefruit juice in your diet.
Grapefruit juice contains chemicals that interact with enzymes in the body that are used to break down statins.
