  • I started taking Lipitor about 7 years ago, maybe ...

    I started taking Lipitor about 7 years ago, maybe around 2008. About 4 years ago or so, I switched to the generic, Atavorstatin.
    I believe I have contracted several side effects caused by these drugs including insomnia, depression and negative/dark dreams. I don't recall having these issues prior to taking this stuff. (By the way, I am male and 73 years of age).
    I also have had kidney stones - Sept. 1997, Sept. 2012 and Feb. 2016. The first two were 15 years apart. The second and third 3 1/2 years apart, however, since the third event, I have changed my eating habits dramatically eliminating salt, as much as possible, nuts, and the like. I drink about 70 to 80 ounces of water and lemon juice a day and take 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar in water twice a week to help prevent future stones.
    I am thinking seriously about ditching atorvastatin and trying to get along without it.
    Would appreciate feedback.

    My RA is mild. The methotrexate caused my cholesterol to rise. The Lipitor caused my blood sugar to rise. The rheumatologist denied that the Methotrexate did this but I found research by peer reviewed journals that reported this finding.

    I just quit after over 2 years of atorvastatin because I strongly suspect that it caused my a-fib, which did not exist before the statin. I'm interested in reading stories that confirm the connection, and especially in recovery strategies.
