[QUOTE=pizzzzza]Hi Hubble!

Question - how long were you on the Lipitor?

I was on for 4 months - have been off for 3 months - still having major aches/pains/soreness/weakness in arms/legs, but especially wrist and feet.



I was on Lipitor for over 7 years before I encountered severe muscle pains.

I had serious problems a few months after my doctor also prescribed Tricor. I found later that this combination is not recommended except in certain dire circumstances (like the patient's triglyceride count is in the stratosphere)...\

It took over 8 months off both meds, and the switching to supplements (CoQ10, Vitamin-C, L-Lysine, Folic Acid, Omega-3 Fish Oil, Ester E) before I noticed any improvement. THe pain is mostly gone now (1.5 years later), and I feel much stronger and can exercise much more than I could 2 years ago...

I think everyone on statins is doing some sort of damage to their muscular and nervous systems - it's just that some can tolerate the damage longer before it rears it's ugly head.
