What is LIPITORŪ (Atorvastin
LIPITORŪ is a prescription drug in one of the newest classes of
cholesterol-lowering medications, called statins. These drugs have
been used widely for the last five years. For people with high cholesterol,
LIPITORŪ, in combination with a low-fat diet, can reduce your LDL
cholesterol and triglyceride levels.
How does LIPITORŪ work?
LIPITORŪ works by blocking an enzyme in the liver that your body
uses to make cholesterol. When less cholesterol is produced, the
liver takes up more cholesterol from the bloodstream. This results
in lower levels of cholesterol circulating in your blood.
How does LIPITORŪ improve the
different types of cholesterol?
In medical studies of people with high cholesterol, LIPITORŪ, taken
once a day, had the following effects at doses of 10 to 80 mg:
Lowered total cholesterol by 29-45%.
Lowered LDL cholesterol, the "bad" cholesterol, by 39-60%.
Increased HDL cholesterol, the "good" cholesterol, by 5-9%.
Lowered triglyceride levels by 19-37%.
What are the effects of LIPITORŪ
LIPITORŪ is a very effective medicine for lowering high LDL cholesterol-the
main target of cholesterol-lowering therapy. Your doctor will determine
how much your LDL cholesterol needs to be lowered, based on your
overall risk of heart disease. LIPITORŪ also effectively lowers
high blood-triglyceride levels.
What would I need to know about
Most people will require the starting dose, which is a 10 mg tablet
once daily. Your doctor will prescribe the dose that is right for
you, which may be 10 mg to 80 mg. LIPITORŪ can be taken any time
of the day, with or without food. To make it easier to remember
to take LIPITORŪ you can plan to take it at the same time each day,
such as after you brush your teeth in the evening. The amount or
how often LIPITORŪ is taken should never be changed without consulting
your healthcare professional.
How long does it take LIPITORŪ
Generally, LIPITORŪ works within 2 weeks. The full effect is usually
seen within 4 weeks and lasts as long as you continue taking it.
Always take LIPITORŪ as directed by your healthcare professional.
Who should not take LIPITORŪ tablets?
Some people should not take LIPITORŪ. Those with active liver disease
or possible liver problems; women who are pregnant, could possibly
become pregnant, or are breast-feeding; and people who are allergic
to any of the ingredients in LIPITORŪ.
Does LIPITORŪ interact with any
If you take LIPITORŪ with certain other medicines, they may affect
one another. LIPITORŪ may interact with certain other cholesterol-lowering
drugs, some antibiotics, and antifungal medications. It may also
interact with less-frequently prescribed medications as immunosuppressives
(given after transplants). Be sure to tell your doctor or pharmacist
about all prescription and nonprescription drugs you are taking.
What about Lipitor
LIPITORŪ is generally well tolerated and side effects are usually
mild. In studies, the most common side effects associated with LIPITORŪ
were constipation, flatulence, indigestion, and abdominal pain.
If you are prescribed LIPTORŪ, your healthcare professional may
want to conduct routine blood tests to check your liver function
before and after starting treatment.
Be sure to tell your healthcare professional if you have any allergies
to food or medication. Also, report promptly any unexplained muscle
pain, tenderness, or weakness, particularly if accompanied by discomfort
or fever, as these symptoms may be signs of serious side effects.
