Frequently Asked Questions

Atorvastatin

What is atorvastatin?

Atorvastatin (generic for Lipitor) is a prescription drug used to prevent heart disease and treat high cholesterol. Atorvastatin has been shown to reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke. In people with coronary heart disease, atorvastatin has been found to lessen the need for difficult heart surgeries. As a cholesterol drug, atorvastatin is used to decrease bad cholesterol (low-density lipoprotein) and triglycerides and to increase good cholesterol (high-density lipoprotein). Cholesterol, fats, and lipids build up on the walls of your arteries in a process known as atherosclerosis. This decreases blood flow and oxygen supply to your heart, brain, and other parts of your body. Atorvastatin helps to lower cholesterol, which has been shown to prevent heart disease, angina (chest pain), strokes, and myocardial infarction (heart attack).

What is atorvastatin used to treat?

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved atorvastatin to treat high blood pressure and cardiovascular disease.

For patients at risk of coronary heart disease - including those with high blood pressure, bad cholesterol, a family history of early coronary heart disease, and who use tobacco- atorvastatin may reduce the risk of heart attack, stroke, and angina.

In patients with type 2 diabetes, atorvastatin may reduce the risk of heart attack or stroke.

In adult patients with evident coronary heart disease, it is indicated to reduce the risk of heart attack, stroke, the risk of hospitalization for coronary heart failure, and the risk of angina.

In adults with high cholesterol, atorvastatin works with diet to reduce elevated total cholesterol, bad cholesterol, and triglycerides in adults or in children ages 10 to 17 with heterozygous familial hypercholesterolemia (a genetic disorder that involves abnormal levels of cholesterol).

How does atorvastatin work?

Atorvastatin is in a class of medications called HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors (or statins). HMG-CoA reductase is an enzyme that controls the rate of cholesterol production in the body. Inhibiting this enzyme helps to lower the amount of cholesterol produced by the body, thus decreasing the amount of blood cholesterol that may build up on the walls of the arteries, blocking blood flow to the heart, brain, and other body parts.

What are the most common side effects of atorvastatin?

Statin therapies such as Atorvastatin are safe for most people, however, adverse effects will sometimes occur. The most common side effects include cold-like symptoms, joint pain, diarrhea, urinary tract infections, indigestion, nausea, muscle spasms, muscle aches, muscle pain, insomnia, and temporary forgetfulness, memory loss, or confusion.

Rare, more serious adverse events have been known to occur, such as myopathy (a condition that affects voluntary muscle control), rhabdomyolysis (a breakdown of muscle tissue that can damage the kidneys), and liver damage. Be sure to alert your doctor right away if you're experiencing any unexplained muscle pain, cramps, spasms, tenderness, or weakness; fever; tiredness; dark-colored urine; headache; loss of appetite; vomiting; stomach pain; or yellow eyes or skin.

Tell your doctor if you have a history of liver disease, diabetes, seizures, low blood pressure, or thyroid or kidney disease. Atorvastatin should not be taken by women who are pregnant, who plan to become pregnant, or who are breastfeeding.

This is not a complete list of atorvastatin side effects. To learn more about averse effects you may experience while taking atorvastatin, please visit the National Institutes of Health’s DailyMed webpage.

How long does it take for atorvastatin to work?

If you take your medicine regularly, as prescribed, you should see noticeable results within 2-4 weeks. Atorvastatin is most effective when combined with a healthy diet and exercise.

What is the typical starting dose of atorvastatin?

Dosage for atorvastatin generally ranges between 10mg and 80mg a day, depending on your age, the reason for taking it, cholesterol levels, and other medications. It is usually taken once a day and comes in tablet form, including chewable tablets for people who have difficulty swallowing a pill. You can take it any time of day, as long as you stick to the same time every day. If you forget to take a dose, resume with your regular dosing schedule the next day. Do not take extra doses. Make sure your doctor and pharmacist are aware of all prescription and non-prescription medications, vitamins, and supplements that you are taking. Drug interactions with the following may increase the risk of serious side effects: Cyclosporine or Gemfibrozil; anti-viral medications; Ritonavir; azole antifungals or macrolide antibiotics; HIV and Hepatitis C medicines (such as protease inhibitors); Niacin; fibrates; and Colchicine. Excessive consumption of grapefruit juice (more than 1.2 liters a day) may also increase the risk of adverse effects.
