Internal Medicine - Cardiology
In brief: Accupril & Lipitor (atorvastatin)
I have perscribed these two meds for over 10 years.
Both of them are safe at the recommended doses. Side effects for Accupril include elevated potassium and creatinine. Similar effects for Lipitor (atorvastatin) are elevated liver enzymes and muscle aches or pains. Overall they are safe at the recommended doses.
