Will Too High A Dose Of Lipitor Cause Too Much Potassium

Since my doctor changed my dosage of lipitor from 40 to 80 miligrams my potassium level has gotten higher. Could this change have caused this change?

Answer

Hello Lipitor,

I couldn't find anything that said Lipitor caused increased potassium levels, however there are drugs out there that do. Some blood thinners do. I would check with you healthcare provider to see if they have heard of Lipitor increasing potassium levels.

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. I hope this was helpful
