The lipitor, a statin, and the ezetrol together can adversely affect the liver and therefore your liver enzymes should be monitored via blood tests periodically. Your doctor should be monitoring your liver because of this combination. If this is not happening, I would consult your doctor about this.
The literature states as follows:
•Your doctor should do a blood test before you start taking Ezetrol with a statin. This is to check how well your liver is working.
•Your doctor may also want you to have blood tests to check how well your liver is working after you start taking Ezetrol with a statin.
If you have moderate or severe liver problems, Ezetrol is not recommended.
Hope this helps,
