Q. how can i feel better about taking my lipitor medications?

A1Irus- i'm not sure exactly what you mean by "how can i feel better about taking". if you mean about drugs side effects like diarrhea, headaches and that sort- it's supposed to go away about couple of weeks after starting the medication. if not- tell your Dr. and there are numerous medications that work in the same way and won't make you feel bad.

i hope that i answered your Q.. if not- you are most welcomed to ask again
