I jumped on this lipitor thread because of my boss. He revealed to me that he has been on lipitor for five years. I read above that colcath had muscle twitches. That reminded me of my boss. Of course, you would know that I am trying like crazy to talk him out of taking lipitor. I gave him Dr. Graveline's book to read. I was pleased to find out that he is actually reading it. Here's the problem. He said that his family has a history of dying of heartattacks in the fifites. He, naturally, is in his fifties and really scared. He says his chances are much better to take the drug to control his cholesterol, than to worry about being in "this small" percentage of people who have adverse effects. He tells me that he his toe twitches every night, just thinks it's a bit peculiar, but not worried. I am! People read those darned 1-2% stats and toss this off like it can never happen to them! I can only hope that he will begin to see the light.
