Lipitor, also known as atorvastatin, is a fat-regulating medicine used to lower cholesterol levels in the blood. It is available as tablets in doses of 10mg, 20mg, 40mg and 80mg.
You can order Lipitor online through Prescription Doctor's quick online consultation service.
Cholesterol is a type of fat made in the liver from the fatty foods we eat and it is stored in the body to be used as an energy source. However, eating excessive fatty foods over time will cause a build-up of cholesterol levels in the blood, blocking the vessels and increasing the risk of heart disease and circulation problems, if left untreated.
Lipitor belongs to a group of medicines known as statins. These work by inhibiting an enzyme in the liver from producing cholesterol.
The liver produces two main types of cholesterol known as low density lipoproteins (LDL or ‘bad cholesterol’) and high density lipoproteins (HDL or ‘good cholesterol’). High levels of LDL or ‘bad cholesterol’ in the blood vessels can increase the risk of developing heart and circulatory problems.
Atorvastatin (Lipitor) works by blocking the action of a specific enzyme which is used to produce LDL in the liver, hence lowering the levels of LDL circulating in the blood vessels and reducing the risk of heart diseases.
Lipitor tablets should be taken once daily, and used in combination with a low cholesterol healthy diet to achieve and maintain optimal results.
Lipitor tablets should be swallowed whole with a drink of water, with or without food at any time during the day, although it is best to take it at the same time daily to help you remember.
Your doctor will usually start you on the lowest dose of 10mg once daily and review you every 4 weeks to possibly increase your dose until your cholesterol levels are adequately managed.
Before taking Lipitor, it's important to read the patient information leaflet which comes enclosed with your medicine.
If you experience any of the side effects listed in the patient information leaflet, bring them to your doctor's attention.
Your doctor may prescribe Lipitor alongside a cholesterol absorption inhibitor, such as Ezetimibe.
Always store medicine out of the sight and reach of children and pets.
You can take Lipitor at the usual time the next day if you forget to take it today. You must not take a double dose to make up for the one you forgot to take.
You should seek immediate help from your doctor or the nearest hospital if you have accidentally taken more than your usual prescribed dose of Lipitor.
Do not drink excessive alcohol while taking Lipitor as it can affect your muscle cells, leading to muscle weakness.
There is currently no evidence that taking Lipitor will affect your ability to drive or use machinery. However, if you notice any symptoms that affect your driving or working, you should stop driving or working with machinery when taking Lipitor.
