Frequently Asked Questions
What is atorvastatin and how does it work?
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.
What are the uses for atorvastatin?
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.
How do you use atorvastatin?
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.
