Constant constipation and muscle weakness. Never had high cholesterol. Was put on drug after blocked artery in abdominal aorta
7 Jun 2013
oh my gosh. this site drugs.com and the groups are amazing. i started atorvastatin a few weeks back. i started getting constipated often. i have to take vicodin for a lower back pain and blamed it on that. but after taking the vicodin i never got constipated. sort of a relief to know what was effecting me like that. i feel like im turning into my parents where these issues of bathroom bowel movements were talked about openly. lol.

Yes - but you should discuss how you are feeling with your doctor. Your doctor may wish to try another medicine to help reduce any future blood vessel blockage.
