You say that you took too many tablets of Lipitor and now have pain in your legs. This could be a case of rhabdomyolysis, which has been reported with most all drugs in the group of drugs Lipitor is in This condition can have serious consequences if not addressed. My advise as a pharmacist is that you stop Lipitor immediately and contact your physician. Rhabdomyolysis can be a very serious condition. Please call your physician and let him or her know your situation or if not available go to an emergency room to be seen by an ER doctor to rule out Rhabdomyolysis as a possibility. RUDYRX
