Have you noticed any changes in your food cravings with lipitor?

Lipitor is a brand name for the drug atorvastatin, which is a type of medication known as a statin. Statins are used to lower cholesterol levels in the body and reduce the risk of heart disease and stroke. According to Drug Patent Watch [1], Lipitor was approved by the FDA in 1996 and is currently available as a generic medication.

One of the side effects of statins, including Lipitor, is changes in appetite and food cravings. GoodRx [2] reports that some patients may experience a decrease in appetite, while others may experience an increase in appetite or food cravings. However, it is important to note that not all patients will experience these side effects and they may vary in severity.

Another medication that is sometimes prescribed in combination with statins is Zetia, which works by blocking the absorption of cholesterol in the intestines. According to Medical News Today [3], Zetia may also cause changes in appetite, including an increase or decrease in appetite, as well as food cravings.

It is important to talk to your doctor if you are experiencing changes in appetite or food cravings while taking Lipitor or any other medication. Your doctor may be able to adjust your medication or recommend lifestyle changes to help manage these side effects.
