List of Medications to Avoid

Does anyone know if there is a list out there that names the medications people with mito should avoid? This would include medications that prevent the production and/or absorbtion of CoQ10. I know there must be a list out there somewhere.

Hi Jim, Here is a few. *On our protocol all it has listed as "no no's" are propofol (and a few other anesthesias), statins, and erythromycin.

Hi, I don't know. One doctor has told me and my son we should take it, because we have melas, thus for stroke prevention, but I don't feel comfortable with doing that and have not researched it, so I decided not to use it. I also am uncomfortable using it in my son for fear if he gets a fever he is at risk for Reye's syndrome. I don't know, even though it has been recommended. Maybe you could go onto Pubmed and punch in aspirin and mitochondrial toxicity and see if there are any articles about it. Beth
