My name is Jill for those who don't know me. I am in Australia and I take Lipitor 40mg.
I am 30yrs and a bad cholesterol level and my doctor wanted me on Lipitor striaght away but I declined due to my age. My Neuro then spoke up and said that yes she believed it would help me. So I took the leap and am now on 40mg once a day. My doctor believes there is some research that has said that 40mg is the smallest dose that shows its most effective of lowering Cholestoral and for me the 60mag is very expensive. She thought the 10mg would be withdrawan from the market eventually.
I can honestly say that yes it has helped my MS. I feel quite Stable. I have been on it for 4 months now and although I haven't regained anything in the damage I have but for the first time in the last two years I feel "stable" and feel like I can keep it under control. I thought in the end it was a win win situation because it fixed my Cholesterol and it might help my MS. Always up for a drug that does two jobs in one.
I am going on 5 months free of any relapse and aiming 6 months. For those that think it must be my MS Meds - forget it I don't take any of them becuase they just don't agree with me. At lease the Lipitor doesn't have any side effects - well none that I have come across.
