Lopid and Lipitor
Feb 2, 2005

Hello Dr. I have been on Lopid for many years and now my doctor has given me lipitor to take as well. Are these ok to take together? Just wondering because they seem like they would cancel each other out.


Response from Dr. Henry

Those drugs actually work well together though there is a modest increase rate of toxicity that needs to be watched for (muscle irritation). KH

What replaces Sustiva?
Will lypo eventually correct itself after a med change?
