Description

Why is Lipitor prescribed?

Lipitor (Atorvastatin) is used together with diet to lower blood levels of "bad" cholesterol (low-density lipoprotein, or LDL), to increase levels of "good" cholesterol (high-density lipoprotein, or HDL), and to lower triglycerides (a type of fat in the blood). Lipitor belongs to a group of drugs called HMG CoA reductase inhibitors, or "statins." Lipitor is used to treat high cholesterol, and to lower the risk of stroke, heart attack, or other heart complications in people with type 2 diabetes, coronary heart disease, or other risk factors such as genetically high cholesterol. Lipitor is for use in adults and children who are at least 10 years old. Atorvastatin (Generic) is also available in addition to the Brand name Lipitor.

What is the most effective way to take Lipitor?

Take Lipitor exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Follow all directions on your prescription label and read all medication guides or instruction sheets. Your doctor may occasionally change your dose to make sure you get the best results. Do not use this medicine in larger or smaller amounts or for longer than recommended.

  • Lipitor is usually taken once a day, with or without food. Take the medicine at the same time each day.
  • Do not break a Lipitor tablet before taking it.
  • You may need to stop using this medicine for a short time if you have: uncontrolled seizures; an electrolyte imbalance (such as high or low potassium levels in your blood); severely low blood pressure; a severe infection or illness; or surgery or a medical emergency.
  • It may take up to 2 weeks before your cholesterol levels improve, and you may need frequent blood tests. Even if you have no symptoms, tests can help your doctor determine if Lipitor is effective.

Lipitor is only part of a complete treatment program that may also include diet, exercise, and weight control. Follow your doctor's instructions very closely.
