I take Lipitor (atorvastatin) and, since starting, have developed a cough. Could there be a connection? If so, is there a long-term, non-drug solution.

In brief: Probably not
Not a common side effect of lipitor (atorvastatin).
Could be reflux. Tell your doctor. If on lipitor (atorvastatin), you probably have high cholesterol. May be "heart cough".
