Lipitor side effects
I am on Lipitor for highish cholestrol and have found that I have enormous "staying" power since taking it ie it could be said that I almost battle to have an orgasm.A quickie is no shorter than 20 minutes (excluding foreplay).This might sound great but it can be physically exhausting.

I also find that my erection is not as strong as before.

Is there anything that anyone could suggest I use to improve the situation.

I have forwarded you letter to Pfizer Headoffice (makers of Lipitor) to see what the research shows up under "Sexual adverse events".
