Q: How should I take LIPITOR?
A: LIPITOR should be taken by mouth exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Don’t break LIPITOR tablets before taking.
BUT.....my doctor told me it is okay to break the tablet in half now, and take half per day, and he even gave me a pill cutter supplied to him by the drug salesman, so what's going on here. my doc said he never heard of this rule or advice and he has no idea why this would be. So i am asking Lipitor PR department to tell me and so far they are stonewalling me for 5 days and soon the New York Times will turn this into a good medical detective story. I say this as a heart patient taking Lipitor, successfully i might add and very greatful to be alive, but hey, where does truth lie?
