Ever since I started taking the statin drug my leg muscles have become very weak. Can I quit the statin drug and replace the medication with diet and exercise?
Leg muscles have become very weak, and I feel they shouldn't be. I am 76, and work out almost regularly--walking, riding stationary bike, leg raises, toe raises, and hamstring exercises. I take a very popular statin drug daily (1/2 pill every evening), and in spite of all the exercise seem to be getting weaker.
