    I have been taking a tour of the Staten which is the generic for Lipitor since 2013. In the last four years I’ve had eight different surgeries for eight different trigger fingers plus bilateral carpal tunnel syndrome surgery. I am very interested in discussing with others who seem to find a correlation between statins and trigger finger issues.

    I started taking Lipitor about 6 months ago. about 2 months ago I started having severe pain in my left shoulder, under the shoulder blade, like a very sore muscle. It continued no matter what I did, exercise, yoga, pain killers. It SUDDENLY occurred to me to look up whether that might be a side effect of this drug, which I really resisted going on. Now I feel like I must stop it to be sure that's what's causing it.

    Have had dry mouth for years while on drugs elavil and lipitor. Stopped elavil 1 year ago and had significant improvement but dry mouth still bothers me some. Past 3 days tried Capsicum which seems to help. I use Xylimelts at overnight which definitely helps.

    After 1 week of taking Atorvastatin 40mg/day, I developed a dry throat and hoarseness. Will this hoarseness subside after taking this medication for a longer time?

    Do your doctors believe you when you tell them that there is a connection with lipitor and Hypercalcemia? My doctor took me off of lipitor for to weeks to prove to me that there is no connection. I don't think 2 weeks is long enough. Has anyone changed from lipitor to another statin and seen lower Hypercalcemia results?

    I have a friend who is in her 50's and she started having Simple Partial Seizures shortly after starting on Lipitor. The doctor took her off Lipitor but in a few weeks put her back on it saying it wasn't the Lipitor since she suffered another seizure. She still has them, is on Lipitor and medication is not controlling the seizures. Any input would be appreciated.
