If I go off of Lipitor (atorvastatin) for 3 months in order to take sporanox, how much could my cholesterol increase in that amount of time?

In brief: As much as it drops

It will go up to pre Lipitor (atorvastatin) levels more or less, unless you have changed your diet and weight substantially.

In brief: Back to base line

Stopping Lipitor (atorvastatin) will probably raise cholesterol to base line in 3 month.
It might be preferable to decrease dose of Lipitor (atorvastatin) while on sporanox.
