        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.  This 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.  For those that want to learn more, links to published information are provided.  Patients should proceed to the Patient section and physicians to the Physician portion to obtain the most appropriate information sources.
