For statins to clear your body,
it takes about 2 weeks.
My husband was on Lipitor and started to get pains in all his body.
We finally suspected it was the Lipitor.
He went off it and felt better in a week and pretty good in two weeks.
The important thing is to lower your cholesterol by eating fresh vegetables and fruit.
Use olive oil and sunflower oil.
These don`t have saturated fats.
I hope this helps.
If anyone is on Lipitor,
they should cut their dosage by splitting each pill into 3 doses.
Lipitor is too strong.
You get the same effect by using just 1/4 or 1/3 the dose.
They way doctors are prescribing Lipitor and other statins you would think they were getting a kick-back.
I suspect they win a trip for prescribing lots of statins.
