Question: Stomach Problems
|Richard Cain - Fri Jan 28, 2005 9:43 am||
Having stomach fullness and nausea for about three weeks. When sleeping, nausea gets worse when I turn on my side. I thought Lipitor might be causing it, but when I withhold Lipitor the problem remains. Pepsid and Mylanta give some, but little, relief.

Dear Richard Cain,
It is true that lipitor can cause, nausea and Flatulence. Gastritis is also a side effect of this drug. the effect is reversible but it might need sometime till the effect of the drug is removed from your body.
If the symptoms are not improving and getting worse even after you have stopped lipitor intake, take appointment with your doctor and consult him.
