Do you take Lipitor and Trilipix?

Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (1 year ago):

  • I started taking Lexapro in December 2012. I also started Trilipix again. I took it a couple of years ago with no adverse side effects. The rash started within a week of beginning the medications. I stopped taking the Lexapro about a month ago, thinking that was what caused the rash, but it is not getting any better. It is extremely itchy.
