A meta-analysis shows that 200 – 300 mg Q10 supplementation per day can lower fatigue in statin-associated myopathy and fibromyalgia patients (Mehrabania 2019).
This 2022 systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials concludes that CoQ10 is an effective and safe supplement for reducing fatigue symptoms. (Tsai 2022).
