I just started on lipitor a few days ago and I have noticed I'm very emotional since then. Is this one of the side effects?

Yes, depression can be a side effect of Lipitor. Please see your doctor if symptoms persist.

from the effects that I have seem the most they have been problems with the legs etc and sometimes with tingling in the hands, they do multiple tests to make sure things are where they should be but as always if this is new I would allow the doctor to know and then he can evaluate you and then make sure that things are like they should be and of course it might be something that is new but please just be safe and better safe than sorry please do take care I wish I could give you an answer and then it help right now but your doctor knows you and this may not be anything to do with this medication I wish you the best
