stopped taking this medication due to very painful muscles. Since that time this problem has disappeared. I was at the point that I could not enjoy any tupe of exercise and now walk 45 minutes a day and no problem with bending or going up and down stairs.

just recently, news articles have been published saying the FDA has found now after reevaluation, that lipitor has no beneficial affects on patients cholesterol during clinical trials. why would the doctors tell people that exercise and change in diet are more effective in lowering their cholesterol instead?

Recently my physician increased my dose from 10 mgs. to 20 mgs., to try & improve the HDL and lower the LDL. It has worked. My cholesterol is now at l50 & my physician is happy, so am I. But, I keep regular office visits and Lab. work is regularly done. With low fat diet, exercise, no smoking and listening to my physician, Lipitor has worked for Me. Thanks.
