buffalo hump vs. Lipitor
Aug 13, 2003

I've found that when I take Lipitor regularly my buffalo hump reduces in size. Is this a coincidence or is this effect explainable?

Response from Dr. Moyle

I can't think of one! I have been involved in some studies of the effect of statin drugs but have not been impressed that they lead to improvements in appearance. Count yourself lucky and keep on taking the lipitor

Best Regards
