Taking Lipitor and wanting to know if anyone knows if this is a prescription that causes blood in stool. I do not have any pain, that is the strange thing. I went to the doctor about a year ago and he said at that time I had a Anal Tear and gave me some stool softners. This cured it back then, but now 3 times I have had bright red blood in toilet just recently. Reading all info, I should have some kind of pain, so I am puzzled at what is going on. Please let me know what I should do. I will probably see a doctor by the end of this week if I do not find anything out, because I am scared!
