Deciding on Lipitor with Elevated Liver Enzymes
Oct 11, 2003
My doctor suggests that I start Lipitor. My cholesterol results are TOTAL: 235, HDL:29, Triglyc: 231, and LDL 160. I am concerned that my liver enzymes will become more elevated. They are currently ALT: 50, and AST: 31. Are my concerns re: side effects of the Lipitor unfounded?
Thanks, Louis K.

Are you on HIV meds, or any other meds?
