  • When my doctor increased lipitor to 20mg, within 2-3 weeks, I began experiencing symptoms of major depression. I was and am on meds for dep, which have been quite effective. I went to a psychiatrist who is saavy with drug side effects and interactions. I stopped lipitor and depression cleared. I eventually went back on lipitor at 10 mg and have not had any problems. Dr said side effect was dose dependent
