I was told by my Endo. Dr. that I should consider taking Lipitor for my cholesterol.At the time my number was 175.Under 200 is where we should be.I told him NO because of the side effects.I thought about it and gave in,I tried it for a while,My number dropped to 155,but I started to get pain in the back of my legs,and my legs felt heavy,so I stopped taking it.At my next visit 2 months later I told the Dr about the side effects.I stopped the meds. I started to walk more and and exercise. I have been off cholesterol meds for about 9 months.My number is 131.It is cheaper and safer to walk and exercise a little more. Does anyone else feel the same way.I feel we are test subjects for medication!!!!
