Yes, Lipitor causes excessive sweating, it is a rare side effect considered to be less severe.

Contact your Doctor anyway and let him/her know what you are experiencing. Safety always comes first.

You may report side effects to FDA at 1-800-FDA-1088.

My best wishes, and hope your Doctor can find a solution... from a caring individual
