What is Lipitor?

Lipitor (atorvastatin calcium) is one of the most well known branded medications that is prescribed to lower cholesterol in patients who are at risk of associated heart complications. It belongs to a group of medications known as statins, which reduce harmful cholesterol levels by targeting the work of the enzyme responsible for its production.

In simple terms, this means the level of "bad" cholesterol is reduced, allowing the "good" cholesterol to work more effectively in the body. Lipitor is a clinically proven medication with a relatively low risk of side effects.

How does Lipitor work?

The active ingredient in this medication, atorvastatin calcium, is able to reduce cholesterol levels because it affects its production by the liver. It does this by hindering an enzyme called HMG-CoA reductase, which works in the liver.

When the HMG-CoA reductase enzyme does not produce the same high levels of harmful cholesterol, less of this "bad" cholesterol (low density lipoprotein or LDL) is able to cause problems such as the clogging or narrowing of the arteries. The "good" cholesterol (high density lipoprotein or HDL) can then work more effectively to protect the arteries. Lipitor also reduces the levels of other dangerous fats in your blood, such as triglycerides.

Category Total-C (mg/dL) LDL-C (mg/dL)
Acceptable <170 <110
Borderline 170-199 110-129
High ≥ 200 ≥ 130

What are the benefits of Lipitor?

Clinical trials have proven that Lipitor is highly effective as a way to lower cholesterol. It is often prescribed to people for whom lifestyle changes have proved inefficient in lowering cholesterol. When taken alongside a healthy diet and regular exercise, Lipitor can reduce cholesterol by as much as 60%. Lipitor can also lower triglyceride levels by almost 40% and can also reduce the risk of heart attack or stroke in patients with other health complications such as diabetes or high blood pressure.[1]

High cholesterol can lead to extremely serious health complications, particularly involving the heart, so it is very important to take the right course of treatment if you have been diagnosed.

How can I increase the efficacy of Lipitor (atorvastatin calcium)

Quitting smoking:
Stopping smoking is a great way to raise 'good' HDL. Studies have shown that people over quit smoking for a one-year period increased their HDL levels by approximately 2.4mg per mg/dl, whereas the HDL levels in the group who continued smoking remained roughly the same.

Further studies have shown that a 1 mg/dl rise in HDL lowers the risk of heart attacks, strokes and heart disease. Doing this in tandem with using your Lipitor tablets can increase its efficacy in the long term.

Exercise:
Just 30 minutes of moderate to vigorous exercise every day can help you increase the effects of Lipitor. Recommended activities include walking, jogging and cycling. Day-to-day activities such as gardening also count towards your exercise quota.

Diet:
If you stick to a diet that is low in saturated fats, this will help you lower LDL 'bad' cholesterol levels. This includes the consumption of foods such as vegetables, fruits and oats. Reducing consumption of foods with high saturated fat content will reduce the overall level of triglycerides in the body.

How do I take Lipitor tablets

Lipitor tablets will be most effective if they are taken as part of a healthy lifestyle, which includes a low-cholesterol diet and regular exercise.

You should swallow each tablet whole, ideally with a glass of water, either with or without food. It is usually advised that you take your tablets in the evening, as statins are thought to be most effective overnight. This is because your liver produces the most cholesterol during this time period.

It's also important to keep taking this medicine, as once you stop taking it your levels of HDL will begin to rise again.

What dosages are available with Lipitor?

Lipitor tablets are available to buy online in the following doses: 10mg, 20mg, 40mg or 80mg

The tablets are usually prescribed in the first instance in a 10mg dose, though this can increase to a maximum of 80mg depending on your response to the medication. Your individual dosage of medication can only be determined by a doctor. You should never increase or decrease your dosage without discussing it with a doctor first.

Are there side effects when taking Lipitor tablets?

Lipitor isn't known for causing side effects, however they are a possibility, as is the case with any prescription medication. Such effects are usually mild and do not last for very long. Commonly reported effects of Lipitor include:

  • Gut disturbances
  • Nosebleeds
  • Dizziness
  • Back and muscle pain
  • Headache

Less common effects that could occur when using Lipitor tablets include vomiting or loss of appetite. Very rare side effects could include fever, leg and ankle swelling or hepatitis and although these are very unlikely to happen, if you do experience a very serious reaction to this medication you should seek medical advice as a matter of urgency.

What are the precautions/interactions for Lipitor?

Lipitor (atorvastatin), like most statins, is thought to be safe for the majority of people. Although, as Lipitor is a prescription medication, it may not be suitable for everyone. For some people, certain health conditions and medications may mean Lipitor is not the best choice of cholesterol-lowering medication, and in some cases could cause it to be harmful. These can include:

  • Those suffering from kidney or thyroid problems
  • Those who are allergic to Lipitor (atorvastatin)
  • Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding
  • Those with alcohol abuse

This is why it is important to disclose any relevant information relating to your medical history when completing the online consultation, as an alternative treatment will likely be recommended.[2]

It is important that you also do not eat grapefruit or drink grapefruit juice as doing so is known to cause a negative reaction to statins. For further information about the potential adverse effects, as well as the precautions and interactions of Lipitor oral tablets, please refer to the helpful patient leaflet, which is included with your medication and is also available for download.
