I have been taking 10 mg of Lipitor to lower my cholesterol for over 20 years…actually I have been on Lipitor since my early 20’s! That is over 30 years of taking a drug that I don’t believe I actually need.
I approached the subject with my doctor a few times over the years and he always said No you cannot stop taking Lipitor because you still smoke.
He did not take into account that my diet went from completely fast food to NO crap whatsoever, without even one tiny slip up. I have not eaten junk food for over 30 years!
But the mysterious muscle aches and pains, the headaches etc. can all be attributed to this drug.
I am going to experiment.
I will stop taking it for one month…starting today.
