  • Perceived effectiveness for High Cholesterol: Moderate
  • Side Effects: Mild
  • Adherence: Usually
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 40 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: Because I sometimes get aching in muscles I can not explain, it worried me that it could be from the lipitor and not MS causing it and I feared I might get that muscle disease that can be fatal from statin drugs so I wanted to stop taking it. I have also been trying chiropractic treatments but have yet to get the blood work done to check on how I am doing without lipitor for cholesterol control.
Side effects: Muscle aches, Joint tenderness, Joints ache, Muscle soreness
