    Hi Friends,
    I have been on Lipitor 20mg for over a year and a half now. It has done a wonderful job bringing down my tryglycerides and my cholesterol, from 220 to 170.

    I was wondering if I could now take the Lipitor every other day now instead of daily.

    Has anyone every done that?

    Hugz and god bless

    I wouldn't unless your doc says it is okay. I wish it would have gotten my cholesterol down. I went from 378 to 289 and I'm on 80 mg. of Lipitor and can't take the other statins and can't take Crestor as it gives me headaches.

    Now I'm using flax seed oil capsules in hopes that will lower it more. Cinnamon gives me heartburn and I have GERD and can't take that.

    Hugs,
    Faye
