Everything you've described can be normal side effects of taking Lipitor, according to NIH reports. Many people have had to stop taking it, due to the severity of such symptoms.

In such cases it is usually better to try a different medication.

Is your cholesterol high? What caused the heart attack? New studies show that they aren't always due to elevated cholesterol, so such medications don't always help.

Are you on any other medications?
