What is IMPOSTER ?

IMPOSTER is the name of a medical research study of patients with muscle symptoms while taking cholesterol lowering therapies called statins. Several important findings from this study have been published and have raised questions about the safety of statin therapy for patients with muscle complaints.  The Imposter website was developed to address those questions and to share what is known about statin muscle toxicity with patients and their physicians.  For those that are concerned that they may have a side effect to their statin therapy the guidelines for evaluating that side effect are provided.
