You may be interested at these reviews (Write a review):

  • Lipitor caused gout attack.
    My doctor gave me Lipitor to lower my Collestoral (240). Three days later I had lower stomach pains and the beginning of a Gout attack on my foot. I stopped taking the drug after 4 days when the full blown Gout attack came. I had been watching my diet and had not had a Gout attack for two years (my first one). Nothing changed except the Lipitor. I have no doubt the attack was brought on by the Lipitor. If you have Gout DO NOT TAKE LIPITOR (or its generic). Im now in my second week of pain and it's terrible.
  • Ear pain from allopurinol 100mg (1 response)
    I have just been prescribed 100mg Allopurinol.
    1 a day.
    I am in my second day of taking these tablets.
    I have begun to get get a sudden pain in my ear.
    I have never in all my years have ever had such a pain.
    I know the only change that has happened around me is taking these tablets.
    I have stopped taking these and am awaiting my next appt with my GP.
    I do take Arcoxia with paracetemol for pain relief.
  • Niacin induced thrombocytopena
    On peritoneal dialysis, 40mg Lipitor and 3000mg Niaspan. Platelets decreased to 12 and residual renal function fell off a cliff. Examination of patient's records for 10+ years showed long term platelet decline. Niaspan discontinued, platelets recovered to 120-200 (varies depending on sample) and some residual renal function returned.
