  • From this study (12 months ago):

  • a year ago the patients anti-seizure medication was increased, and he began taking lipitor.... he had also taken levothyroxine for years.....after a year of the increase in antiseizure med and lipitor the patient began having shortness of breath and now he has atrial fibrillation and a weakness of the heart (below normal ejection fraction). Could the lipitor in combination with the thyroid and antiseizure medication have caused a weakness in the heart?
