Merck keeping secret from statin users.
Secret Revealed
Merck has had a patent on a statin/coQ10 combination since the late 1980's. The following claim from one of two 1990 Merck patents (4,933,165) states that adding add CoQ10 to statin drugs overcomes statin induced myopathy: "A pharmaceutical composition comprising a pharmaceutical carrier and an effective antihypercholesterolemic amount of an HMG-CoA reductase inhibitor and an amount of Coenzyme Q.sub.10 effective to counteract HMG-CoA reductase inhibitor-associated skeletal muscle myopathy."

Unfortunately, the combination was never introduced into the marketplace. This should have been a no-brainer given that research shows patients on the combination live an average of 8 years longer versus only 5 for statins alone. This should not come as a surprise given the fact that statins deplete the body of coQ10, rendering the performance of the mitochondria in our cells less effective. Excuse the sarcasm, but three more years of selling statins - what's not to like for Merck?

All About Cost
In our opinion, Merck knew the world supply of CoQ10 was limited, was costly to produce, and predicted that production would only supply one-sixth of the world's statin users. In 1990, when Merck sought and received the patent for Mevacor and other statin drugs formulated with up to 1,000 mg of coenzyme Q10 to prevent or alleviate cardiomyopathy, a serious condition that can cause congestive heart failure, they realized the cost of the drug would be too exorbitant to make it a worldwide blockbuster."

Anyone know if there is a prescription form of CoQ10?  Given Merck's patent, I'm wondering if a case can be made for getting insurance coverage.
