First of all, that's pretty shocking that the pharmacist mixed up your drugs! Actually, it's pretty scary. I did a little research on lipitor at drugs.com and apparently 10 mg is the minimum dosage.
There is also a study on our Scleroderma Medications section about Statins Ease Scleroderma. It appears that statins (such as lipitor) may actually ease the symptoms of scleroderma rather than trigger anything. I haven't found another study since this one from May, 2006, but if I find anything I'll pass it on.
I hope you are feeling better today.

Wow, I am so sorry this happened, but truly the 14 days you were on the lipitor would not have caused you any problems other than the fact you were having withdrawals from not having the other med!
