I don't blame you for wanting him off of that stuff. My husband went almost 7 years on Lipitor and I couldn't figure him out at all. Not only was he is constant pain..which the Dr. said was NOT related to them, but he also was short tempered and moody. After I went on them for about 4 months I was a wreck. Had horrid muscle pains and constant Diarrhea.
After coming here in 2000 and getting advice from other posters who seemed to have the same problems I dumped them and made hubby dump his. Come to find out, neither of us had cholesterol that bad anyway, so there really was no need to be on pills. We do just fine with diet and some exercise.
Your not alone, and the side effects ARE real. Good luck..JJ..
