Have you experienced acne or oily skin as a side effect from using Lipitor? If so, tell us about it below.
I’ve been taking lipitor 40 mg for 3 weeks approximately. My upper back and back of my arms are breaking out in large acne spots. I’ve tried using both acne soap and stuff it seems to dry it some but it won’t go away.
Yes. I start getting pimplee on my abdomen and chest within a week of starting lipitor. Last week the acne started on my face with cystic acne. When I stop taking the lipito, the acne clears up.
I have been taking LIPITOR (20mg) for FIVE DAYS and I instantly started breaking out first on my upper back and now on my face. The only other time I ever broke out this way was when I was on prednisone for another condition. Is this a side effect of all statins?
I have been taking Lipitor for 4 days and have developed pimples all over my upper chest and it is spreading to my face.
Almost immediately after starting dosage I’ve been getting cystic acne on my face and neck. 40 y/o male.
