How to get atorvastatin (Lipitor) online in Canada with Maple.

First, choose your symptoms

Select your symptoms within the Maple app so the doctor can evaluate your symptoms and condition. Enter as much information as possible so that the doctor can make a thorough assessment.

If you don’t have employer / insurer coverage, fees may apply since many of our services aren’t covered by provincial health plans. This is often because of our use of secure messaging and a national network of doctors and nurse practitioners.

Payment may be required, and will include the prescriptions for atorvastatin (Lipitor) if the doctor deems it necessary.

Next, you'll hear from the doctor

Once you’ve entered your symptoms, a doctor or nurse practitioner will review your case. If they’re able to help, your visit will start; if they can’t help, you’ll be notified before your consultation begins and you won’t be charged. You’re only charged if you speak with a Maple doctor.

Most often, you’ll speak to your doctor or nurse practitioner over text, though they may request audio or video chat if it’ll help with your diagnosis.

Get your medication

You'll get a prescription right on Maple, so you can send it to any pharmacy for pickup, or you can have it shipped with free delivery.

In some cases, a prescription won’t be recommended by the doctor. They will let you know if this is the case. Doctors may also not be able to prescribe some medications in certain provinces or regions.

Note: Maple is not a pharmaceutical manufacturer, nor are we an online pharmacy. This means you'll need to buy the medication from the pharmacy itself once you have your prescription.

Frequently Asked Questions

Atorvastatin is part of a group of drugs called HMG CoA reductase inhibitors or “statins”. It works by reducing the amount of cholesterol made by your liver. Atorvastatin is sold under the brand name Lipitor.

Atorvastatin 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 artery disease, or other risk factors. It is used to treat adults and children who are at least 10 years old. Atorvastatin works best when combined with eating a proper diet that’s low in fat and cholesterol, and making certain lifestyle changes, such as exercising, losing weight, and quitting smoking.

Atorvastatin is taken orally once a day with or without food, as directed by a doctor. Avoid eating grapefruit or drinking grapefruit juice while taking atorvastatin, as grapefruit can increase the level of the drug in your blood.
