What is Atorvastatin?
Atorvastatin is a generic medication that is available on prescription to help lower cholesterol in people who have been diagnosed with high cholesterol. High cholesterol is a dangerous condition because it can lead to heart disease and atherosclerosis. Atorvastatin belongs to a group of medications known as statins, which can reduce cholesterol levels by preventing a particular enzyme from producing too much "bad" cholesterol. As these harmful levels are reduced, the "good" cholesterol is then able to function more effectively. The risks associated with high cholesterol are in turn reduced.

Is Atorvastatin effective?
Atorvastatin is equally effective as its branded counterpart, Lipitor. It has been proved through clinical trials that the medication is able to reduce cholesterol levels in patients and in turn significantly reduce the risk of the patient experiencing cardiovascular complications such as heart attack or stroke that would otherwise have been brought about by their elevated cholesterol level.
How does Atorvastatin work?
Atorvastatin is a type of statin. Statins are medications which are used to reduce cholesterol levels. They achieve this by inhibiting the function of an enzyme called HMG-CoA reductase, which is important in the production of cholesterol by the liver. Cholesterol is commonly divided into either "good" cholesterol (high density lipoprotein - HDL) or "bad" cholesterol (low density lipoprotein - LDL). This distinction is important because it is the "bad" cholesterol that is being referred to when people talk of "high cholesterol". When the production of "bad" cholesterol is reduced, it allows the "good" cholesterol work more effectively, lowering the risk of cardiovascular complications.
How do I take Atorvastatin?
Statins like Atorvastatin will produce the best results if they make up part of a generally healthy lifestyle with the aim of lowering cholesterol. This means you should be following a healthy diet and making sure you exercise regularly. The first time you are prescribed Atorvastatin it will probably be in the 10mg dose. Depending on how your body responds to the medication, you may find that your dosage is increased, up to a maximum of 80mg. This decision can only be made be a doctor, and you should never adjust your dosage without your doctor's consent. The tablets should be swallowed whole with the help of a glass of water.
