Before anyone either taking Lipitor and its brethren now or thinking about doing it, they should do some research on the side effects. One of the greatest medical hoaxes perpetrated on the public in history, IMO. But very, very profitable.
My husband's doc wanted to put him on it years ago. We had a friend who turned into a different personality after going on it, so my spouse took the dietary approach and all was well within a month or so. Drugs can be life saving or life-ruining. Anyone think Big Pharma cares who goes dotty as a result of their product ?

After some type of body scan which was to check out my blood, I was immediately put on the generic version of Lipitor called Atorvastatin Calcium.

I am taking one 20 MG pill a day. (Maximum dose is 80MG) and after my social security picks up their share I pay just over $10 for 90 days worth.

I have no idea whether this medicine is good or not. However I trust my Doc up north, and he is the one who put me on it.

I don't trust any anything any more. I google every med &/or procedure before using the regime suggested by my doc, and he is a really good diagnostician.

Unfortunately the source of all the information is from the pharmaceutical companies, therefore no one can get unbiased information!

Here's a link where some truthiness about drugs is given, and wow, have I learned a lot:
The People's Pharmacy. Google it. They send info to your email twice a week. Free.
Trust the doctor without watching my own back, too? I'm with Gamina and Kiri! The docs get their "education" about drugs from the Pharma reps.

The US Physicians Desk Reference (PDR) is a book compiled of the patient inserts of every medicine available in the US. Guess who writes the insert info?

Some people cannot lower their cholesterol  by changing their diet so Lipitor it is.. Everyone in my family has very high cholesterol level.. that is the way our bodies work and except for me everyone is skinny however our ration is very good but the whole cholesterol always very high so we take 10mg of lipitor and it lowers the cholesterol...My mother stop taking lipitor at 85 and her cholesterol is 350.. but she is now 96 so .. as she says we all have to die of something. She took Lipitor for about 40 years and survived it.. everyone is different.

Agree that medication is indicated in some cases.  However, there are millions of people whose doctors have put them on those drugs almost automatically.  My husband, when told his cholesterol was high, asked the doctor if he could overcome it by dietary changes and the doc said "Yes, you could, but nobody does it".  In other words, people go on the drug and continue their eating habits, thinking that now they have "Kings X".

Your mom has super genes! Hope you inherited them.

My family history is exactly like yours, Brigitte, I also have to take it and get by with lowest dose. An important thing to remember about statins is they not only lower cholesterol but inflammation as well.

I tried the diet to lower cholesterol, and it didn't work. My M.D. wanted me to start w/80mg. I didn't like that so I took the 80mg. and cut them into 1/4 and take 20mg. Now I have several bottles of generic pipitor that I will never use.

And when I Google any medical question/issue, I always put "Mayo" at the end. This way the first results I get are from the Mayo Clinic, a respected source of info.

You cal also try Pubmed It is pretty technical but the opening Synopsis is usuallythe synopsis is sifficient for me.
