: on and on you go down a dead end road. i'll bet some of the people on here with memory problems are also on lipitor or a statin drug!
: please check this out and if you are try stopping the drug for awhile or have your doctor change you to a different drug.

I found out that Lipitor has a lot of side effects even though the most commonly presented ones are muscle pain and liver inflammation. There are several others, serious and not so serious. Incidentally, there will be a chat with a doc about coronary artery disease on www.dna.com on 9/13. Those of you using Lipitor or other statin drugs, may want to check it out and ask a few questions.
