    Hello, I have been on Lipitor 10 for years with no problems. I am thinking about taking one of the better brands of Garcina Cambodia, it is more pure form and no additives/fillers etc.
    has any one who is also on Lipitor had problems or reactions taking the Garcina Cambodia also?

    76 year old female,excellent health until I had an episode with trip to emergency room for high blood pressure and high cholestrol. In the ER they sent me home with 325 mg aspirin a day and 40mg. Lipitor. Went to my doctor 2 weeks later he said stay on both meds. About 2 months into taking thes my legs were aching at night about 5 hours after taking the Lipitor at bed time. I called my doctor and he said add CoQ 10, until I saw him in 6 weeks. At the office visit I explained the leg aches and weakness again,he said ok I will switch you to 10 mg Crestor, but he called late that afternoon that my enzymes were elevated and he wanted me to have an ultra sound. I told him stopping the Lipitor I felt like a new person,no aches and legs regained strength. I am asking him to let me come back in a month for new blood tests and no ultra sound and more tests till we see if stopping Lipitor also reduces the elevated enzymes.

    I have been taking Lipitor for about 2 weeks at night and developed extreme itching, mainly on my scalp and back. My GP said to stop for 2 weeks. It has been 1week now and I am still itching. Not h
    Just on head and back but all other areas of my body as well. I am wondering if Keeled will take it away. Having difficulty sleeping and it is horrible.

    I have been taking Lipitor for over a year and Crestor prior. A few months ago I started to develop white spots on my hands, arms, scalp, and legs. I am worried it will move to face as it is getting pretty noticeable now. My mother had it so I thought maybe it was inherited. Now I wonder. I am 65 and never had anything like this before.

    I have not yet seen the doctor but will soon.

    I have been on Atorvastatin for just over a year. I hand numbness and cold feet and hands before I was even on this medication. My doctor is blaming this on Atorvastatin even though I had it before taking this medication. He told me to stop taking it, he isn't my Cardioligist so not sure if I should stop taking it.
