The majority of the clinical uses for
CoQ10 are founded upon its role as an antioxidant, and its role in
mitochondrial bioenergetics. It is a coenzyme for numerous reactions
involved in cellular respiration, and is required for the efficient
formation of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the cellular currency which
drives the majority of enzymatic reactions. As an antioxidant, CoQ10 is the
only lipid-soluble antioxidant synthesized endogenously. It inhibits
peroxidation of cell membrane lipids and as well as circulating
lipoproteins. CoQ10 supports cardiac tissues by improving endothelial
function and by having a direct anti-atherogenic effect, which results in
lower blood pressure and improved ventricular contractility.
In clinical trials, CoQ10 has shown benefit for a wide range of
cardiovascular conditions, including congestive heart failure, hypertension,
and prevention of myocardial infarction. It has also been had clinical
benefit for a number of neurological conditions, including Huntington’s
disease, migraine, and Parkinson’s disease. Oral CoQ10 has also had positive
results in patients with periodontal disease, gingivitis, male infertility,
and statin-induced myopathy.

Although very little evidence supports this interaction, CoQ10 resembles
vitamin K structurally, and a potential interaction is possible for those
taking the anticoagulant Coumadin. Close monitoring of the INR is
recommended with CoQ10 introduction in these patients.
No other negative drug interactions are known for CoQ10, though a number of
medications are thought to interfere with CoQ10 synthesis or function in the
body, including statin medications, tricyclic antidepressants, and oral
hypoglycemic agents. To prevent side effects or the depletion of CoQ10 in
body tissues, many health experts recommend supplementing CoQ10 at dosages
ranging from 30 to 400 mg per day in people taking the following drugs:
Cholesterol lowering drugs, such as
atorvastatin (Lipitor); gemfibrozil (Lopid); lovastatin (Mevacor);
pravastatin (Pravachol); simvastatin (Zocor), etc.
Beta-blocker drugs used in angina,
high blood pressure, and heart arrhythmias, such as acebutolol (Sectral);
atenolol (Tenormin); carteolol (Cartrol); metoprolol (Lopressor, Toprol
XL); penbutolol (Levatol); propanolol (Inderal); timolol (Blocarden),
Phenothiazine drugs used in various
psychiatric disorders such as chlorpromazine (Thorazine); fluphenazine (Permitil,
Prolixin); mesoridazine (Serentil); trifluoperazine (Stelazine); etc.
Tricyclic antidepressants, such as
amitryptaline (Elavil, Endep); desipramine (Norpramin, Pertofrane);
doxepin (Adapin, Sinequan); imipramine (Imavate, Presamine, Trofinil);
nortryptaline (Aventyl, Pamelor); protryptaline (Vivactil); etc.
