Will taking CoQ10 with my cholesterol medication prevent side effects?

I have been taking a statin (Zocor) to reduce my cholesterol and I have recently heard that taking CoQ10 would help reduce side effects and improve the effectiveness of the statin. Is this true?

CoQ10 stands for coenzyme Q10. Coenzyme Q10 is an enzyme that is naturally found in your body and is essential for energy generation and antioxidant work within the body. Some prescription medications can alter the amount of coenzyme Q10 in the body. It has been believed that cholesterol medications like statins may be one of these medications. Some studies show that they reduce plasma levels of coenzyme Q10 by up to 40%, however the exact clinical relevance of this is unknown.[1] 

Some researchers believe that supplementing people who are taking statins with coenzyme Q10 will reduce the risk of side effects.[2] To date, there is some evidence to show this may be the case, but more research is required before we can be certain.[3] If you are experiencing side effects while taking your statin see your doctor to discuss what your options are.
