Lipitor®/Atorvastatin®/Torid® (generic name: atorvastatin) blocks the production of cholesterol (a type of fat) in the body. This drug reduces low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol and total cholesterol in the blood. Lowering cholesterol can help prevent heart attack, stroke, and vascular disease for sufferers of heart disease and type 2 diabetes.

Atorvastatin is generally well-tolerated. Minor side effects include constipation, diarrhea, fatigue, gas, heartburn, and headache. Atorvastatin may cause liver and muscle damage. Serious liver damage caused by statins is rare. Liver tests should be performed at the beginning of treatment then as needed thereafter. Inflammation of the muscles caused by statins can lead to serious breakdown of muscle cells called rhabdomyolysis. Rhabdomyolysis causes the release of muscle protein (myoglobin) into the blood, and myoglobin can cause kidney failure and even death. When used alone, statins cause rhabdomyolysis in less than one percent of patients. To prevent the development of serious rhabdomyolysis, patients taking atorvastatin should contact their health care professional immediately if they develop unexplained muscle pain, weakness, or muscle tenderness.

 

Atorvastatin is used for the treatment of elevated total cholesterol, LDL, and triglycerides and to elevate HDL cholesterol. The effectiveness of atorvastatin in lowering cholesterol is dose-related, meaning that higher doses reduce cholesterol more. Atorvastatin prevents angina, stroke, heart attack, hospitalization for congestive heart failure, and revascularization procedures in individuals with coronary artery disease. Atorvastatin reduces the risk of myocardial infarction (heart attack), stroke, angina and revascularization procedures in adults with multiple risk factors for coronary artery disease. Atorvastatin also prevents heart attacks and strokes in patients with type 2 diabetes with multiple risk factors for coronary artery disease.

 

  • How quickly does cholesterol rise after stopping statin?

    How quickly does cholesterol rise after stopping statin?
    Cholesterol levels will slowly return to the original level measured before treatment began just a few months after stopping Lipitor (atorvastatin). Unless there are specific reasons, such as serious side effects, pregnancy, and other medical conditions, discontinuing Lipitor should only be done with the close supervision of a medical consultant.
  • How long does it take atorvastatin to lower cholesterol?

    How long does it take atorvastatin to lower cholesterol?
    Atorvastatin provides rapid onset of benefits. It should reduce the level of LDL cholesterol in the blood by up to 90% within the first two weeks of treatment compared to what was measured before treatment was commenced. Further control may require increasing doses of atorvastatin to increase efficacy. Regular consultation with healthcare professionals is advised.
  • Does atorvastatin affect sleep?

    Does atorvastatin affect sleep?
    There is considerable investigation into the question of whether statins affect sleep patterns. The main answer from research trials run with more than 100,000 patients is that statins do not cause insomnia or any other sleep disturbance directly. However, one of the common side effects of statins is muscle pain, which can make people uncomfortable and therefore struggle to rest or sleep at night.
  • Is it OK to suddenly stop taking atorvastatin?

    Is it OK to suddenly stop taking atorvastatin?
    A sudden break in taking a statin medication like Lipitor could create a higher risk of cardiac problems, including heart attack, or a stroke. Changes in medication should only be undertaken under the supervision of a qualified healthcare provider. Doctors may only recommend stopping treatment with atorvastatin for patients who have serious side effects.
  • Can you skip a day of atorvastatin?

    Can you skip a day of atorvastatin?
    The general advice from doctors is that a missed dose of this medicine should be taken as soon as possible. However, if it is almost time for the next dose, the recommendation would usually be to skip the missed dose and go back to the regular dosing schedule. It is vital to not double dose.
