CholesLo Side Effects (vs.) Lipitor?

See my last post for my own blood lipid profile numbers with just 71 days on Choleslo. Over the years I have been on Lipitor and Tricor (A DEADLY combination) and most recently for a long time on Niaspan. In the mix there somewhere I tried Nialor. I am now on CholesLo and am very impressed with my lipid profile numbers and will be staying on this product as I just ordered another 3 month supply.

What about any side effects of CholesLo? a NUT SHELL there are no reported side effects. On the other hand the results have been nothing short of amazing.

What about side effects of Lipitor and ther statins?


I am NOT playing doctor here, however I  was on both Lipitor and Tricor for a while until I could no longer tolerate the side effects. I will never go on either of them again. I think you should do your own research and possibly give CholesLo a try. Consult with your doctor FIRST and have him or her look into it and find out about weaning yourself off lipitor and or other statins and see what the pros and cons of doing so are. For me it is NO CONTEST. I have also had better actual results with CholesLo than anything else I have personally tried.

  • Side Effects of Lipitor Tablets

  1. Common Side Effects: Headaches

    • According to the FDA-required study, 16% of people who took Lipitor reported headaches. The study did not specific which type of headache (cluster, tension, migraine, spinal). As of 2009, no major drug interactions have been reported between Lipitor and anti-headache medicines such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen. However, it is unclear whether these drugs would offset the Lipitor-related headaches.

    Common Side Effects: Infection

    • In the same study, infection was reported in 10% of people taking Lipitor. These infections occurred primarily in areas including sinus, chest and urinary tract. While uncomfortable, none of these infections required hospitalization.

    Common Side Effects: Muscle & Joint Soreness

    • 5.6% of subjects reported muscle and/or joint soreness. The soreness tended to be isolated but could be anywhere on the arms, legs and back. It's not clear whether the site of the pain correlated to repetitive stress. For example, if you're training for a marathon and you were to experience this side effect, the pain could arise in your knees and legs, but that might just be a coincidence.
      IMPORTANT: Report any muscle or joint pain to your doctor, as it could be a sign of rhabdomyolysis, a condition where muscle begins to break down much faster than your body can repair.

    Dangerous Side Effects In Unhealthy People

    • Because Lipitor is designed specifically for lowering cholesterol, the FDA study used subjects who were healthy, save for their high cholesterol levels. In real life, however, many people who take Lipitor for high cholesterol have other serious health problems like metabolic syndrome, diabetes and liver disease. Because of these problems, their body functions are significantly altered and may react dangerously to Lipitor.
      If you experience any of the following symptoms, call a doctor immediately.
      - Unexplained weakness
      - Fever
      - Nausea or ill feeling
      - Dark urine
      - Abdominal pain
      - Yellowing of the white of your eyes (jaundice)
      - Yellowing of the skin (jaundice)
      - Unexplained increase or decrease in urination
      - Allergic reactions (swelling, difficulty breathing, wheezing, hives/rash)
      Even if your medical history is normal, these symptoms might mean that Lipitor is reacting to an undiagnosed health problem.

    Anecdotal Side Effects: Mental Fogginess, Dementia, Memory Problems

    • These particular side effects were not reported in significant numbers during the FDA test, but there are message boards online with anecdotes that Lipitor caused mental fogginess, short-term memory problems and hastened Alzheimer's-related dementia.
