... for 2 days had to go to ER. Hi liver enzymes. Dr says no more lipitor. Anyone else with these side effects?
Here is what I found, hope this helps.:
Diarrhea; joint pain; mild sore throat; nausea; runny or stuffy nose; stomach upset.
Seek medical attention right away if any of these SEVERE side effects occur when using Lipitor:
Severe allergic reactions (rash; hives; itching; difficulty breathing or swallowing; tightness in the chest; swelling of the mouth, face, lips, throat, or tongue); change in the amount of urine produced; dark urine; muscle pain, tenderness, or weakness (with or without fever or fatigue); painful, difficult, or frequent urination; pale stools; persistent loss of appetite; persistent pain, soreness, redness, or swelling of a tendon or joint; red, swollen, blistered, or peeling skin; severe or persistent nausea, vomiting, or stomach pain; unusual tiredness; yellowing of the eyes or skin.
