Jon, hang in there as it takes some folks awhile to get over the side effects. I was on Lipitor for only 7 weeks but it took the effects almost 2 months to totally go away. Mine was mostly stomach jitters, no appetite, tiredness & muscle weakness and I lost 16 lbs. in 3 weeks. After going off it, it took me 3 weeks to actually start to eat normally and get some energy back. Dr. took me off for 7 weeks, but numbers went back up so now I am on Baycol. I'm not crazy about Baycol either, but it seems better than the Lipitor. Have to go on the 27th to see if it is doing numbers any good. I was glad to see you post about weird dreams, as I had them also but never seen anyone else mention them. I'm new to the board, so maybe it was mentioned before I came. Don't get discouraged, as the effects will go away, just give it some time. Take care, and hope things get better soon. JJ
