What is Lipitor?
Lipitor is a man-made lipid-lowering drug of the class of statins. It comes in the form of tablets with Atorvastatin calcium as active ingredient. The drug works by blocking certain enzyme that controls the production of cholesterol in the liver. Thus it lowers LDL (bad) cholesterol and triglycerides in the blood and raises HDL (good) cholesterol as well. It is a top-selling drug among other statins due to its dramatic effect on LDL-C reduction.

When is Lipitor indicated?
Lipitor is primarily indicated to treat dyslipidemia and prevent cardiovascular diseases. It is used to lower lipids in patients who are at high risk of cardiovascular accidents, such as heart attack, stroke or who have such risk factors as age, high blood pressure, smoking, low HDL or family history of early cardiac disease. It is also indicated to mitigate the risk of stroke and heart attack associated with diabetes. The drug is approved for treating LDL-C in children aged 10 and over.

How to take Lipitor?
Lipitor tablets are taken by mouth, usually once daily, on a long-term basis. In some cases the drug can be taken every other day. The starting dose for most patients is 10mg or 20 mg. Patients with extremely high cholesterol may be started at 40 mg. Children aged 10-17 are started at 10 mg q24h, with the highest recommended daily dose 20mg. Tablets can be taken at any time of the day, without regard to food. The drug is often administered along with low-fat diet and certain lifestyle changes to help it work better.

What are Lipitor side effects?
Lipitor may provoke diarrhea, dyspepsia, muscle and joint pain as well as changes in blood tests. However the major effects the drug can cause are liver-related, such as jaundice, hepatitis and increase in liver enzymes. Immediately report to your prescribing physician if you develop stomach pain, nausea or vomiting, passing dark colored urine, yellowing of skin or whites of the eyes, feeling more tired than usual.

When is Lipitor contraindicated?
Lipitor is contraindicated to people hypersensitive to Atorvastatin calcium or any other components of the drug as well as to patients with active liver disease. It should be administered with caution to people who consume alcohol more than average or have a history of hepatic disorder. The drug is referred to pregnancy category X, meaning that is contraindicated to pregnant and breastfeeding women.
