Comment:
Lipitor made me feel sick to my stomach & lethargic. Horrible! I took the lowest dose, 10 mg, and couldn't tolerate it for more than a week. I changed my diet & lost about 7 lbs, and upon recheck, my cholesterol was normal. My husband takes 50 mg and tolerates it very well.

I have been on Lipitor for over a year and my bad cholestorol has dropped from 225 to 76. The only thing I'd like to see to is a less expensive generic replacement. It's pretty expensive.

Comment:
One of the worse drugs I've ever been on - legs got so sore and weak I could barley get up from a chair. I would wake up at night due to soreness in legs. After being off this drug for about 2 years, I am slowly regaining leg strength.
