It is one choice but John chose to stay on lipitor more because of the trial going on then for cholesterol. His cholesterol is really not an issue at this time. His MS is also not an issue at this point so he may let the lipitor slide to see if it has caused any of the dramatic improvement. But then again he may chicken out on dropping it all together. Not sure if 10mg will do any good and I have started him on Q10 back on Sept 28 so he may tolerate that dosage well. If he feels the need to hang onto the lipitor I have no problem with it as long as it is not detrimental to his health. 80mg is the study dosage and it is usually the one associated with high CK readings.
