I have been on lipitor for 4 years and wans't getting great resuluts in lowering my cholesterol. I was put on zetia in May and my cholesterol is down to 144. However, the amount of muscle and bone pain that I have experienced over the past 6 weeks isn't worth staying on these drugs. I thought I was dying. I had no energy and was in excrciating pain every day. I went to a neurologist and a rheumatologist and all they wanted to do was give me more drugs. I quit taking lipitor and zetia 10 days ago and feel 90% better. Hopefully, I won't have any long term side effects that the doctors fail to tell consumers about when prescribing all theses wonder drugs to us. I will find a cholesterol lowering agent on my own.
