Side effects of Lipitor

I began having extreme muscle and joint pain after being prescribed Lipitor.   I call my doctor and he said go off Lipitor for 2 weeks and then call him to let him know how I am doing.  I went off my Lipitor 5 days ago and am still having some seveir muscle and joint pain.

Hi grammamoses,

I just finished reading your comments. I just googled Lipitor and found some
interesting information. You probably know this already but Lipitor is
a cholesterol lowering medication. It is not for those people with liver problems. I found the website www.lipitor.com. On this site I found the
following caution " If you take LIPITOR tell your doctor if you feel any new
muscle pain or weakness. This could be the sign of a rare but serious
side effect." My suggestion would be to make an appointment with the
doctor who prescribed the Lipitor to you. Tell them after 5 days being
off the Lipitor, you are still having severe muscle and joint pain and see
what your doctor says. My doctor wanted to put me on a cholesterol
reducing medication at one point too. I refused and told her I would
control my cholesterol which my mom tells me is inherited through
diet. Good luck to you. Eve
