After taking Lipitor for a few months for your high cholesterol, you started to feel a little “off.” You decide to look up the possible risks of taking Lipitor since you don’t remember your doctor telling you of any when he prescribed it. Then you found it—the FDA warning about diabetes, kidney failure, and liver damage.

Could your symptoms be indications of these risks? If the medication has caused permanent damage, what are your options? What can you do?

Common Lipitor Symptoms Worth Concern

Although Lipitor is a popular, effective medication used for lowering cholesterol, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has warned that it can also cause dangerous side effects such as diabetes and liver failure. Unfortunately, low cholesterol isn’t going to help if the medication you are taking is destroying other vital organs. This is why it is extremely important to not only recognize your risks, but to also know what symptoms to look out for.

If you experience one or more of the following symptoms while taking Lipitor, you should seek medical attention immediately—since they could be indications of severe ailments:

  • Memory loss
  • Fever
  • Feeling “fuzzy” or unfocused
  • Unusual fatigue
  • Blurred vision
  • Appetite loss
  • Right upper abdominal discomfort or pain
  • Dark urine or infrequent urination
  • Increased thirst
  • Dry mouth
  • “Fruity” breath odor
  • Nausea
  • Unusual swelling of the limbs or abdomen
  • Weight gain
  • Yellowing of the skin or whites of the eyes 
  • Muscle soreness or weakness
  • Palpitations or irregular heart beat

Is it Worth it?

Given the potential risks involved with taking Lipitor, do you think merely adding warning labels is enough to protect its users? Should there be more research into how to prevent these side effects? Should Lipitor be taken off the market, or do the benefits outweigh the risks?
