I have been on Atorvastatin for past 4 years. Since 2 months I am having pain in my left arm muscles. Could it be side effect of Atorvastatin? Should I stop taking Atorvastatin?
Statin drugs can adversely affect your liver, which could cause muscle pain..I take 20mg of generic Lipitor every day.
I do not know if they can cause pain specific for one part of your body
I am a pharmacy tech at a level 2 trauma center..I asked a pharmacist about Statins and he said they also had anti inflammatory effects so apparently they are useful for lowering LDL and other things
