Lipitor tablets are from the group known as statins, which are taken daily to help lower bad cholesterol levels (also referred to as low density lipoprotein or LDL), and to promote the growth of good cholesterol levels (high density lipoprotein or HDL). When teamed with a healthy lifestyle – a good exercise regime and healthy diet plan – Lipitor can help to alter harmful cholesterol levels to significantly reduce the chance developing serious cardiovascular issues in the future.

|Short facts about Lipitor|
|How to take||
One Lipitor tablet should be taken daily at around the same time. You can take your tablets with or without food, ideally with a glass of water to wash it down.
|How it works||
Lipitor tablets work by interrupting the process that creates bad cholesterol. This allows the body to make more good cholesterol instead. The active ingredient in Lipitor is atorvastatin calcium.
Lipitor is highly effective and can be made even more so by adopting a healthy diet and exercise regime. It is also best practise to take your pills in the evening as more cholesterol is produced overnight.
Lipitor dosages available to buy from OnlineClinic are 10mg, 20mg and 40mg. The recommended starting dose is 10mg, which can be increased if you're not experiencing a difference.
Side effects of Lipitor tend to be mild and temporary, if they occur at all, but can include dizziness, headaches, muscle and back pain and nosebleeds.
Lipitor contains the active ingredient atorvastatin calcium. This statin interrupts an enzyme called HMG-CoA reductase that produces harmful levels of bad cholesterol in the liver, which is transported over your body. When ingested, Lipitor is absorbed into your system lowering the amount of LDL and also fats in the blood.
Due to its close relation with food and fitness, Lipitor will have maximum effect when combined with a healthy diet and exercise. The recommended exercise regime is 2.5 hours per week, which can be realistically incorporated into your everyday life.
Lipitor tablets should be taken exactly how your doctor instructed, and reading the patient leaflet fully before buying is essential practice. Below are the guidelines for taking Lipitor.
Statins are thought to be more effective overnight, as this is when your body produces the most cholesterol.
Doses for Lipitor tablets come in three strengths; 10mg, 20mg or 40mg. Usually, and initially, patients are offered the smallest dosage of 10mg, before increasing to 20mg and 40mg if it is ineffective.
Side effects for Lipitor tablets are a possibility, although rare. If you do experience any side effects, these tend to be mild and temporary, especially as your body becomes used to the new medication. Some reactions can include muscle or back pain, headache, issues with the gut, dizziness and nosebleeds.

As with all statins, drinking grapefruit juice or eating grapefruit can cause an adverse reaction, making Lipitor less effective and/or provoking side effects due to the substance affecting the medication from being processed by the liver. Many people find a substitute for grapefruit in their diet, and you can also read the patient leaflet attached at the right of this page if you have further queries on any side effects or precautions of Lipitor.
