I have been on Lipitor for almost a year now and I think I am having side effects from it. They are muscle pain in my shoulders, arms, & hands and even some numbness in my hands and arms. Has anyone else experienced this trouble? I asked the doctor and he said to just keep taking it but that was back in Sept. and it seems to be getting worse. I have read else where that some people have stopped for two weeks or so and all this could go away. I am considering doing this myself. Would like any suggestions or comments on what others are doing.
