Lipitor is used to treat high cholesterol, and to lower the risk of stroke, heart attack, or other heart complications in people with type 2 diabetes, coronary heart disease, or other risk factors.
If you are wanting to stop Lipitor talk with your doctor. He / she might be able to suggest an alternative. In the mean time you will need to pay very close attention to your diet and exercise program.

Just started lipitor 4 weeks ago. My cholesterol did drop from 300 to 133. I was put on it after I broke my leg then slung a blood clot n had heart attack. No risk factors except the cholesterol. Started having trouble talking then absolutely lost my memory for 2 days. Hi liver enzymes n Dr told me immediately to stop lipitor. Told me to take fish oil n vitamin c
