Recently had small stroke. Cannot seem to find a name for it in discharge papers, however I am sure it is classified somewhere. In hospital I was prescribed Lipitor. After several days of nausea, severe stomach distress, overall feeling feverish and just bad, I narrowed things down and decided it had to be the Lipitor so I refued and slowly started feeling better. My brother's doctor experimented with several of the similar drugs before settling on this one without as many un- desireable side effects, so thought maybe it might also be favorable for me. I am 77 and don't know if I can tolerate any of them. Very lucky, 3 weeks ago, no speech or mouth/eating difficulty. Left body back 90%+ if not more. Active.
