Any experience with high doses of statins?

YANMD, of course. I have been on statins for over 20 years and am a 56 yr old female. Always a healthy weight, exercising, healthy diet. I have genetic predisposition to high cholesterol, including high HDL, LDL and tricgylcerides. Most recent test this week was 323 total cholesterol on 40 mg statins. I think my doctor is going to call me Monday and have me either up my dosage or switch statins or both. I'm worried about muscle wasting. Any experiences with this? Any advice is appreciated, especially if you're like me and inherited this condition.
