76 year old female,excellent health until I had an episode with trip to emergency room for high blood pressure and high cholestrol. In the ER they sent me home with 325 mg aspirin a day and 40mg. Lipitor. Went to my doctor 2 weeks later he said stay on both meds. About 2 months into taking thes my legs were aching at night about 5 hours after taking the Lipitor at bed time. I called my doctor and he said add CoQ 10, until I saw him in 6 weeks. At the office visit I explained the leg aches and weakness again,he said ok I will switch you to 10 mg Crestor, but he called late that afternoon that my enzymes were elevated and he wanted me to have an ultra sound. I told him stopping the Lipitor I felt like a new person,no aches and legs regained strength. I am asking him to let me come back in a month for new blood tests and no ultra sound and more tests till we see if stopping Lipitor also reduces the elevated enzymes.
