Ingredients

The active ingredient in Lipitor is atorvastatin, which works as a HMG CoA reductase inhibitor, stopping the production of cholesterol in the liver by blocking the enzyme responsible for producing it.

How It Works

Lipitor belongs to a class of drugs known as HMG CoA reductase inhibitors. These drugs reduce the levels of "bad" cholesterol i.e. low-density lipoprotein(LDL) as well as triglycerides, while increasing the blood levels of good high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol in the body. Lipitor blocks the enzyme HMG-CoA reductase, which is responsible for the production of cholesterol. This inhibits the production of cholesterol in the liver.

Dosing

Lipitor is available in tablets of 10, 20, 40, and 80 mg. The prescription depends on the severity of the condition and the patient’s response to the treatment. Lipitor is to be taken once daily, usually starting with 10-20 mg per day. It can be taken any time of the day, with our without any food intake.
