... Well I hope after being off the statins your numbers still are ok. Your trigs are still pretty high, but that is my hubby's problem also, and statins do nothing, according to his cardilogist for trigs.

... One of my main side effects I had immediately after starting Lipitor was horriable knee pain... and I mean horriable! Never had a history of any knee problems before. I kept that problem the whole time I was on the stuff, quit it and the pain went away. ... (2 replies)
... your dr. listened. My hubby was on Lipitor for 7 years, and only when I was put on it in 2000, and got very sick, did I start to research statins.
