when I take it at night my sugar go up
Raised blood sugar levels is not a known side effect of atorvastatin. I guess the only way you could determine if it is the cause of the raised blood sugar is if you don't take it for a while and then check your blood sugar.
This is interesting, because my other reference says that diabetes can be a serious side effect, and also that it can cause pancreatitis which could raise the blood sugar. I wonder what's the difference here. I think I'd tell my dr and see what he says. The references are sure confusing.
