Treatment Information
Generic Name: Atorvastatin (a-TOR-va-STAT-in) Brand Name: Lipitor.
Lipitor is the trade name of atorvastatin and is a cholesterol-reducing medicine which works by blocking the production of cholesterol in the human body. Lipitor works mostly by decreasing the LDL levels in the blood and ultimately decreases the total cholesterol levels. The main purpose that Lipitor serves by decreasing the LDL levels in the blood stream is prevention of heart attack. Heart attacks occur when the arteries get clogged by cholesterol. Some other problems that could result from increased levels of cholesterol in the blood stream include stroke and various forms of vascular diseases. Therefore it is extremely important to decrease high cholesterol levels and avoid cardiovascular diseases. Lipitor also helps combat other conditions like coronary heart disease, type II diabetes and other heart conditions. To derive maximum benefits of Lipitor it is equally important to follow a healthy diet and exercise regime because Lipitor cannot replace either of the two mentioned above.

Lipitor contain the following ingredients:
Active ingredient- atorvastatin calcium
Inactive ingredients: calcium carbonate, USP;
candelilla wax, FCC; croscarmellose sodium, NF;
hydroxypropyl cellulose, NF; lactose monohydrate,
NF; magnesium stearate, NF; microcrystalline
cellulose, NF; Opadry White YS-1-7040 (hypromellose,
polyethylene glycol, talc, titanium dioxide);
polysorbate 80, NF; simethicone emulsion

05 Mar 2018 Lipitor practically destroyed my tendons and muscles in just days. At this point I don't even know if I will ever recover. It has been hell. Please be careful if you take statins.
