pain has started in my joints - mainly my legs and hip area. It is more severe during the night while sleeping. The most painful area is my thighs and where my torso meets my legs. I have heard that lipitor can cause this even after taking it for several years. I take metoprolol for high blood pressure which was recently checked and it is fine.
Absolutely not. I would think after 6+yrs of taking lipitor, you would have to wean off. I am not a doctor but I would not just quit taking anything abruptly.
It takes time for the meds to get out of our system. Maybe I am wrong and that would not be a big surprise, but at least check with your doctor first. Thanks kimmie1
