You have to follow up with your doctor to find out why he/ she ordered the test and what is the significance of it in your case. And why was your po2 low. Why was that test done also. It is not a test routinely done. We need more information. Ask these questions ...Read more

My dr is d/c atorvastatin as it maybe causing my severe achiness. How long will it take for med to get out of my system?

My dr is d/c atorvastatin as it maybe causing my severe achiness. How long will it take for med to get out of my system?

Longest: 4 days: The half-life of Atorvastatin is 20-30 hours, so it takes about 4 days for your body to flush out the medicine. If your muscles are inflamed, it make take longer for the achiness to go away. Some folks have felt better after they've taken coenzyme q10 [but it's pricy]. Taking coenzyme q10 while you are taking a statin may help prevent muscle aches in the first place. Good luck. ...Read more

I'm not an ob-gyn but I'm aware of no reason that you should not use the birth control. I would urge you to stop reading internet scare sites. ...Read more
