Hi, Thanks for that information - very interesting.
Sounds like you are saying they were on the Lipitor for one or two years before any problems developed - seems like a long time for a problem to develop - do you have any more details? What sort of doses were they on I wonder? But two people both developing the same problem might be significant - esp. if these are the only people you knew who were on Lipitor.
(I wonder if Lipitor is something that should be treated as a short term medication - ie only stay on it until you get your cholesterol down while you adjust your diet, exercise, BP, weight, etc. Then look for another medication like niacin to assist in keeping it low - without a statin if possible, or just 5 or 10mg.)
Re. the lawsuit that you say is pending - is there any reference to that, and is it because of the muscle cramp problem?
Many thanks, Beefy.
