★USES: Atorvastatin is used along with a proper diet to help lower "bad" cholesterol and fats (such as LDL, triglycerides) and raise "good" cholesterol (HDL) in the blood. It belongs to a group of drugs known as "statins." It works by reducing the amount of cholesterol made by the liver. Lowering "bad" cholesterol and triglycerides and raising "good" cholesterol decreases the risk of heart disease and helps prevent strokes and heart attacks. In addition to eating a proper diet (such as a low-cholesterol/low-fat diet), other lifestyle changes that may help this medication work better include exercising, losing weight if overweight, and stopping smoking. Consult your doctor for more details.
★HOW TO USE: Take this medication by mouth with or without food as directed by your doctor, usually once daily. Dosage is based on your medical condition, response to treatment, age, and other medications you may be taking. Be sure to tell your doctor and pharmacist about all the products you use (including prescription drugs, nonprescription drugs, and herbal products). Avoid eating grapefruit or drinking grapefruit juice while using this medication unless your doctor instructs you otherwise. Grapefruit can increase the amount of this medication in your bloodstream. Consult your doctor or pharmacist for more details. If you also take certain other drugs to lower your cholesterol (bile acid-binding resins such as cholestyramine or colestipol), take atorvastatin at least 1 hour before or at least 4 hours after taking these medications. These products can react with atorvastatin, preventing its full absorption. Take this medication regularly in order to get the most benefit from it. Remember to take it at the same time each day. It is important to continue taking this medication even if you feel well. Most people with high cholesterol or triglycerides do not feel sick. It is very important to continue to follow your doctor's advice about diet and exercise. It may take up to 4 weeks before you get the full benefit of this drug.
★About Lipitor and How it Works
Lipitor belongs to a group of medications called “statins,” which lower cholesterol levels and triglyceride levels. High cholesterol can cause a dangerous accumulation buildup of cholesterol and other fatty substances on the walls of your arteries. These deposits known as plaques can reduce the flow of blood through your arteries and increase your risk of having a heart attack or stroke.
Lipitor is most often prescribed for the treatment of high cholesterol, though it is not a cure for this condition. Atorvastatin, the active ingredient in Lipitor, works by reducing the production of “bad” LDL (low-density lipoprotein) cholesterol by the liver while simultaneously increasing “good” HDL (high-density lipoprotein) cholesterol.
Lipitor medication comes in pill form, and should be taken orally. A prescription is required to buy Lipitor or the generic called Atorvastatin. The generic alternative is not manufactured by the company that makes the brand product.
★Conditions Treated by Lipitor
Cholesterol is a soft, waxy substance that is found in every cell in your body. It helps to produce cell membranes, hormones, vitamin D, and bile acids that help you digest fat. However, high cholesterol can cause an unhealthy accumulation of fatty deposits in your blood vessels. Blockage of these blood vessels limits the amount of blood and oxygen that is carried to the heart and brain. In the heart this may result in chest pain known as angina or even a heart attack, while in the brain this may result in a stroke.
High cholesterol can be detected with a blood test, but does not have symptoms that will alert you to the condition. High cholesterol may be inherited, but is more often due to unhealthy life choices. Regular cholesterol testing is important, especially if any of the following applies to you: family history of high cholesterol; high blood pressure; diabetes; heart disease; obesity; poor diet, lack of exercise; smoking.
Lipitor can lower the risk for heart attack, stroke, certain types of heart surgery, and chest pain in patients who have heart disease or risk factors for heart disease, such as; age, smoking, high blood pressure, low HDL-C, and heart disease in the family.
