AB - Statins are highly effective for preventing cardiovascular events by reducing
low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C). However, many patients taking
statins report muscle-related symptoms that prevent the use of guideline
recommended doses. Patients with reported intolerance to statins have a high risk
of cardiovascular events. Clinical strategies that optimize cardiovascular risk
reduction through LDL-C lowering need to be applied in patients experiencing
intolerable side effects that they attribute to statins. In this paper, the
authors review definitions of statin intolerance, propose algorithms to better
define statin intolerance, and describe approaches to optimize cardiovascular
risk reduction among individuals reporting statin-associated muscle symptoms.
