Is red wine s taste alteration a common lipitor side effect?

See the DrugPatentWatch profile for lipitor

Based on the information available, a taste alteration is not listed as a common side effect of Lipitor (atorvastatin), a medication used to treat high cholesterol levels. According to the drug's official prescribing information provided by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) [1], the most common side effects of Lipitor include diarrhea, upset stomach, muscle and joint pain, and changes in liver enzyme levels.

Furthermore, a comprehensive database of drug patents and medications, [2], does not mention taste alteration as a side effect of Lipitor.

Therefore, it is unlikely that red wine's taste alteration is a common side effect of Lipitor. However, it is always recommended to consult with a healthcare professional or pharmacist for any concerns regarding medication side effects.
