    I have taken Liptor (10 mg) for approx 10 yrs now and my total cholesterol went from 250-275 to 165. My HDL and LDL are also greatly improved. I have not noticed any side effects that I'm aware of were/are caused by this drug i.e. joint pain

    I was taking 10 mg of Lipitor and 10 mg of zetia. the LDL went from 239 to 160 but the HDL was too low. He took me off the double regimine and put me on Lipitor 40mg per day and I started to get tightness in my hips and stiffness on my legs. He cut the dosage in half and sain "that happens sometimes". As far as the numbers go I'll find out in a month.
