    Is Lipitor safer than Crestor for muscle cramp side effects?

    I have been taking Lipitor (10 mg) for years--miracle drug! It has reduced my total cholesterol to 141 from 250+ or so, with HDLs at 80 and LDLs at 49.  Now I have an issue, which is that I am getting muscle spasms/cramps in my legs and hands after golf games. My doctor took me off Lipitor for several weeks, and now wants me to try Crestor. Does anyone know if this is likely to help the muscle cramps?
