Re: Quit taking lipitor no more leg pain!!
Yeah I googled it and found more than a little info on serious side effects. My dad was taking it for quite a while and a few years back. He began to fall and loose balance. He said his legs would just give out on him. He wound up in the hospital. Dr took him off all of his many meds then slowly re-introduced each med. It turned out that the Lipitor and one of his heart meds (can't remember which but I think it was digoxin) doesn't mingle well together. So he went completely off Lipitor. I'm going to ask his doctor about adding fish oil to his medicine regimine.
BTW, Midwest I cannot agree with you more. My dad has alzheimers now so I KNOW that stuff about Lipitor preventing or helping with it is B-O-L-O-G-N-A!
My doc works at our county health clinic. She unfortunately doesn't test for ft3 and ft4 but I believe if I pressed for it, she would do it because she genuinely cares.
Live, Love, Laugh.
