Hi Fuchsia_Lay, I have never taken Tricor. I am taking the famous lipitor. The doctor put me on 20mg. because my cholesterol was 304. After I took it for two months I started having a bad pain in my shoulder. So, I did some studying on it and it said it can cause muscle pain. I had an xray and it showed arthritis. So, I just cut the lipitor down to 10mg. After a few days my sore shoulder went away.

Well that is my experience with lipitor. :wave:
