Martin mentioned, "For High Cholesterol: I took 40mgs. Lipitor daily for 2 weeks & experienced complete muscle paralysis in my legs & arms. Had to stop taking Lipitor. Next Dr prescribed Crestor. Crestor worked alright for 1 month. Then again I had paralysis in my arms & legs. The paralysis disappeared in several days after stopping the cholesterol lowering meds. Dr. Then prescribed Niaspan (prescription strength Niacin) that also produced the paralysis in my thighs and arms , within 2 weeks . Paralysis disappeared in 2 to 3 days after stopping each med. Dr. Decided I need to take 500 mgs. Niacin with food 4 times per day & that has helped me greatly, w/o any paralysis. I also decreased foods that are high in cholesterol & exercise more often. I am 72 yrs of age."

Quality Assurance Inspector (Former Employee) says"Pfizer (Carlisle) does not care about the employees, they only cared about the output of product for the day. You could not go to the restroom or take lunch without management yelling at you. Had to work 24/7, all holidays, and had to come in during snow storm and the roads were closed, you still had to be there. They do not appreciate the work you do. Management gets to leave whenever and you have to do their work for them so that it is done on top of your actual job and then they get rewarded for it not you. You are running around all day doing your job because they run too many machines with not enough people. Overall it is a terrible place to work and a terrible work environment and I would never recommend anyone to work there."
