I was put on the generic form of Lipitor. 40mg. I am small framed and weigh about 120. I started having muscle pain all over and was very weak. Also dizzy and diarrhea. Felt awful. Dr. took me off it immediately and my total cholesterol had dropped from 310 to 153 in less than a month. non hdl went from 220 to 74... but my ALT to check my liver is 46. I am starting to feel much better now that I am not taking it but I am concerned about my liver. Will my ALT go back to normal?

Hello, Bambi! How are you?

Those are all normal side effects of Lipitor according to the FDA, unfortunately. Many people end up so miserable on it that they have to stop taking it.

Your ALT may go back to normal, there's no way to know for sure. You can only eat healthy, avoid taxing your liver and see where it's at, when it's checked, again.

Are you on any other medications?
