Hi there ! I had to reply .. I took Lipitor for a very short time and one day woke up, my eyesight had become Double/double vision! couldn't see.. lost my balance due to this;could hardly walk on my own .
One week later my face collapsed as if I'd had a stroke !.. Hospital could not find stroke , nor Bells' palsy as the cause, but I investigated the latest info on Lipitor at the local Library and it said if any eye problems , muscle problems..etc, DISCONTINUE Lipitor !! It took 4 months before the symptoms wore off.
But, Interestingly, 1 year later, my GP decided to try Zocor, another Cholestrol Meds again..
I took one pill , walked out the door to go to supermarket .. a short time later in the Shop, I felt my eyes going round and round , dizzy, and I wanted to lie down on the floor right in the middle of the shop and go to Sleep !..
Came home and couldn't open my eyes for hours !.. All of a sudden I realized ..
it was the Cholestrol pills again!!
In the morning , my right leg was STIFF!! couldn't hardly walk!.. So I have been off all Chol.meds ever since ..
I vowed to Drs I will NEVER EVER take Chol. meds again !!
Look up other info on this drug ,.. we're not the only ones who've had these problems !..
Hope this helps you.. good luck.. Belle xxx :)
