Lipitor Background and Side Effects
Lipitor decreases cholesterol in the blood, and is used along with diet, weight loss, and exercise to reduce risks of heart attack and stroke. It also helps those who have heart disease (or are at risk of developing heart disease) reduce their chances of needing heart surgery. Lipitor is an HMG-CoA reductase inhibitor, or statin, that is usually taken once a day by mouth.
Patients taking Lipitor may experience such common side effects as mild nausea, muscle pain, some changes in blood tests, or diarrhea. Patients should not take Lipitor if they have a history of liver problems. It is also not for women who are pregnant, nursing, or may become pregnant.
