What is Lipitor?

Lipitor (atorvastatin) is intended for patients with high levels of cholesterol in the blood. High cholesterol levels can increase the risk of developing a number of serious health complications, even conditions that may be potentially lethal. This medicine is a statin that works in the patient’s liver by blocking an enzyme known as HMG-CoA reductase. Not only does the active component reduce the levels of LDL cholesterol, it also increases the production of HDL cholesterol, protecting against coronary artery disease. These days, if you have high cholesterol levels and would like to turn a new leaf in terms of taking better care of your health, it’s quite easy to buy Lipitor online. You always have a choice and may choose to buy these pills online in USA or buy them in Canada if you reside in this country or just heard a lot about the quality of Canadian healthcare. The reason why it makes sense to look for generic drugs over the internet is that online pharmacies give you a chance to buy medication cheap, much cheaper than if you were paying out of your pocket. Buying drugs online is also more convenient, while all your private information is secure and will never get in the wrong hands.

How to use Lipitor?

Lipitor is available as tablets containing 10, 20, 40 and 80 mg of atorvastatin. Higher doses are prescribed for patients with higher levels of cholesterol, while lower dosages are prescribed for patients with less severe cholesterol problems. The usual starting dose for all patients is 10-20 mg of atorvastatin, for the doctor to be able to monitor the progress and decide whether a higher dose is needed. In some cases, the starting dose is 40 mg per day, while it’s not recommended to take more than 80 mg atorvastatin every 24 hours. In general, the tablets may be taken at any time during the day, with a full glass of water or some food. The most important thing is to take it at the exact dose prescribed and make sure the intervals are the same. That way, this medicine will be most efficient in terms of lowering your LDL cholesterol levels and reducing the risk of developing serious health problems.

Side effects

A common side effect is a myopathy. In this case, a patient should stop using the drug. In addition, it can cause insomnia, peripheral neuropathy, asthenia, myositis, erectile dysfunction, seizures, dyspeptic disorders, alopecia, skin allergic reactions, jaundice, and hepatitis.

Contraindications

The drug is not intended for the treatment of patients with allergies to calcium salt of atorvastatin, lactose, as well as those suffering from liver disease, as well as patients younger than 10 years.

The medicine is used with caution in patients with chronic alcoholism who have undergone surgery or injury or suffered a stroke or ischemic attack in the previous six months. In these cases, atorvastatin increases the risks of complications of the cardiovascular system. Lipitor is not used during pregnancy and breastfeeding.

Safety precautions

Although Lipitor is a highly safe and efficient drug that can significantly reduce the risk of a heart attack, chest pain, coronary artery disease and stroke, it’s important to keep a few things in mind before you order it online from the pharmacy of your choice. There may be some contraindications to consider, as well as drug interactions that may reduce the efficiency of your treatment or cause unpleasant side effects. For instance, these pills should not be combined with indinavir, ketoconazole, erythromycin, itraconazole, nefazodone, clarithromycin, ritonavir and cyclosporine, because its elimination from the body may be affected. You should also keep in mind that any existing heart conditions and other chronic diseases need to be discussed with your doctor or pharmacist, to see if the dose you are prescribed needs to be changed. The drug should not be taken if you are not sure you have high levels of LDL cholesterol and triglycerides: this medicine will be beneficial only for those to whom it was prescribed after proper blood tests.
