Lipitor is a statin medication that lowers blood cholesterol and triglycerides. High cholesterol levels can increase your risk of heart disease and stroke. Lipitor may also increase HDL cholesterol (or good cholesterol) in the blood.
People with a heart condition can be prescribed Lipitor to reduce the chance of a heart attack.
Lipitor is part of the HMG-CoA Reductase Inhibitors group, also known as statins. These drugs are often used to treat similar conditions.
Lipitor reduces the low-density lipoprotein or LDL, also referred to as the bad cholesterol and increases the good cholesterol - the high-density lipoprotein or HDL. Lipitor improves the body's capacity to get rid of LDL cholesterol through the liver.
Lipitor can be taken by mouth, with or without food. Strictly follow the instructions of your doctor.
Your doctor will determine your dosage based on your medical condition, your response to treatment, your age, and the other medications you may be taking. Share with your doctor a list of all prescription or non-prescription medicines you are taking.
Your doctor will give you the lowest dose of Lipitor and will slowly increase the dosage as your body gets used to it.
Continue taking Lipitor even after you notice an improvement in your condition unless your doctor directs you to stop the treatment.
If you miss a dosage of Lipitor, take it as soon as you remember. Skip the dose if it is too near to your next regular dose.
Follow your doctor’s advice about diet and exercise. The treatment may take up to 4 weeks before you start feeling the benefits of Lipitor.
Do not give children more than 10 mg one time a day which can be maximised up to a dosage of 20 mg daily.
