I have been taking atorvastatin 10 mg tablets for few years. I developed neck and back pain during last 30 days. Some people say this may be due to atorvastatin tablets. When I informed my family physician regarding this he changed me to pravastatin sodium 20 mg?
10 mg atorvastatin is equal to 40 pravastatin another option is fluvastatin 80 mg extended release which is equal to 10 mg atorvastatin . Fluvastatin has the least side effects then pravastatin and lovastatin . All 3 are good options to talk to your doctor about. I hope this helps
