In brief: May help

Statins such as Lipitor (atorvastatin) deplete your body's coenzyme q10, and taking coenzyme q10 supplements may help reduce side effects associated with taking statins such as muscle pain.
It's not strongly evidence-based and not universally recommended, but theoretically makes sense. Coq10 also has other potential cardiovascular benefits. Talk to your doctor who is prescribing you lipitor (atorvastatin).
