Early research found that heart failure might be linked with low coenzyme Q10 levels. Some research shows that taking coenzyme Q10 might help reduce some symptoms of heart failure. Coenzyme Q10 might also reduce the chances of death or hospitalization related to heart failure. 2.Nerve pain in people with diabetes (diabetic neuropathy). Research shows that taking coenzyme Q10 improves nerve damage and nerve pain in people with nerve damage caused by diabetes. 3.Fibromyalgia. Some research shows that taking coenzyme Q10 by mouth reduces pain, tenderness, fatigue, and sleep issues in people with fibromyalgia. HIV/AIDS. Taking coenzyme Q10 by mouth seems to improve immune function in people with HIV/AIDS. 4.Tissue damage caused when there is limited blood flow and then blood flow is restored (ischemia-reperfusion injury). Reduced blood supply during heart or blood vessel surgery can deprive tissue of oxygen. When blood supply returns to this tissue, the tissue can become damaged. There is some evidence that taking coenzyme Q10 by mouth for at least one week before heart bypass surgery or blood vessel surgery might help to reduce tissue damage. However, not all research agrees with this finding. 5.Migraine. Taking coenzyme Q10 by mouth seems to help prevent migraine. Research shows it can decrease the frequency of these headaches by about 30% and the number of days with headache-related nausea by about 45% in adults. More than half of patients taking coenzyme Q10 experience a 50% decrease in the number of headache days per month. Taking coenzyme Q10 also appears to reduce migraine frequency in children who have low levels of coenzyme Q10. It can take up to 3 months to see any benefit. 6.Multiple sclerosis (MS). Taking coenzyme Q10 by mouth seems to reduce tiredness and low mood in people with MS. A group of inherited disorders that cause muscle weakness and muscle loss (muscular dystrophy). Taking coenzyme Q10 by mouth seems to improve physical performance in some people with muscular dystrophy. 7.Heart attack. When started within 72 hours of a heart attack and taken for one year, coenzyme Q10 appears to lower the risk of heart-related events, including another heart attack. 8.A disease that causes curved, painful erections (Peyronie disease).

However, your body makes CoQ10 naturally. Therefore, most people do not need it. If you experience significant fatigue, take a statin drug, or have heart disease, CoQ10 may be helpful. I do not know of any side effects. Dr. Edwards is board certified in family medicine.
