    Oh my God, I had no idea! I had a minor stroke about 6 years ago and doctors are investigating me for lupus and I have anemia although no one has ever looked into why, all this time I have been taking this drug, I still take it, no one ever said a word My God. Thank you for this site and info.

    Stop taking the Lipitor! The good does not out weigh the bad. I took my senior mother off Lipitor over a year ago. Her doctor told me it was a good call. I did not gradually reduce her dose I just dc’d it. I know a gentlemen who was on it for 5 years then tossed it in the garbage one day. He did not have any adverse reactions from just stopping the med. I am not a licensed professional and it is not my intent to advise or prescribe. I am just sharing my experience with this drug.

    Since taking this drug I have been told after I had gall bladder surgery that my liver in enlarged. Last year I was diagnosed with Diabetes. I am now wondering if this drug is the cause of my problems. I am currently still on Lipitor and am now wondering if I quit this medication will my blood sugar go back to normal or is my liver already damaged from it?
