Lipitor caused me muscle cramping in my right leg and knee out of nowhere. Lowered cholesteral but not worth the side effects.

Comment:
I had been taking this for over two years when I started having severe leg pains. My friend, who was also on this had the same problem and stopped taking it. I too stopped and my leg pain went away. It did keep my cholesterol normal, but the pain was a bad side effect.
