Knock Out Bad Cholesterol with Lipitor 

Most of us don’t need to be informed told that high cholesterol is an indicator of poor health. We know this already. But taking control of cholesterol levels is a whole other ball game. Fortunately, Lipitor is here to help! The name brand for the drug “atorvastatin,” Lipitor helps to lower the bad cholesterol and triglycerides in your blood.

Is Lipitor a miracle drug?

Well, we all know that there is no magical pill, and you need to adhere to a low-fat diet and healthy lifestyle while taking Lipitor. But with these changes in your lifestyle, it really can help lower your bad cholesterol AND raise the levels of good cholesterol in your blood. On top of that, it has been proven to reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke. Talk about a sigh of relief!

How does Lipitor  work?

It’s simple really, even for those of us without a medical degree. An enzyme in the liver is responsible for making cholesterol. Lipitor blocks this enzyme so that less cholesterol is made. So, the liver picks up more cholesterol from your blood thereby lowering blood levels of cholesterol. Ta-da!

Who can take Lipitor?

Just about everyone can reap the benefits of the Lipitor. However, if you have liver problems you should stay away. Also, if you are nursing, pregnant, or may become pregnant, you need to look elsewhere for help lowering your cholesterol.

If you’re taking other medicines, be sure your doctor knows about these before you start Lipitor. And before starting any new medicines while on Lipitor you need to check with your doctor first, as some medicines can have adverse interactions.

Lipitor side effects

  • Diarrhea
  • Upset stomach
