How does Atorvastatin work?

Atorvastatin helps patients for whom lifestyle changes alone have not worked. The drug is part of a group of medication called statins. Statins are lipid-lowering agents which prevent ailments associated with cardiovascular diseases. Cholesterol is a type of lipid which is produced in the liver when you consume fatty foods. High levels of cholesterol can lead to a number of ailments which can be harmful when left untreated.

The medication works on lowering the LDL or low density lipoprotein (bad cholesterol) in our blood. It helps the body dispose of this bad cholesterol and generate high density lipoprotein or HDL (good cholesterol). This reduces the probability of heart diseases such as heart attacks and strokes in the patients.

How do I take Atorvastatin?

The medication is available in different strengths and your doctor will determine the best dose suitable for you. Take Atorvastatin once each day at a time, which is suitable for you, but it is generally advisable to take the dosage at the same time each day.

The doctor will check on you regularly to make sure that the medication is working for you. To gain the most out of the treatment you are required to cut down on alcohol, eating healthy and maintaining a strict diet, reducing salt intake, stop smoking and exercising regularly. Grapefruit can negate the effects of the medication and hence you are advised to avoid grapefruit or grapefruit juice when taking the medication. Females who are pregnant are to avoid the drug altogether.

Are there side effects?

Along with its useful effects, Atorvastatin may develop some unwanted effects of minor severity. These unwanted effects do improve as the body adjusts to the medication. One in ten people may face some of these common side effects:

  • Muscle aches or pains
  • Headache
  • Constipation
  • Diarrhoea
  • Nausea, indigestion, wind (flatulence)
  • Nosebleeds or runny nose

There are other side effects which are extremely rare, but can be very serious. You are advised to consult your doctor immediately if you develop muscle cramps, fever, feel short of breath, unexpected cough and allergic reactions such as swelling of the face or skin rashes.

CanĀ I buy Atorvastatin online?

Yes, you can easily buy Atorvastatin most online. The procedure is completely straightforward and confidential. However, you are advised to first consult with an online doctor to determine whether the medication is suitable for you. Once you acquire the prescription the medication will be sent to you the following day.

10 reviews for Atorvastatin

  1. Sensitive to all meds

    Well, got my lab results and my cholesterol is 311. Not good. Dr put me on 20mg generic lipitor daily. By the 9th day oh man I was a mess. Brain fog, stomach pain, dizzy and kind of angry. So I decided to take the pill every other day. I read that it could be just as effective. It works wonders! No side effects taking 20mg every other day. My Dr don’t know that I dropped down to every other day. She will know soon. I sent her an email just waiting for her to read it. So if daily dose is too much, try every other day or ask for the lower dose.

    Switched from Lovastatin to Atorvastatin with Gemfibrozil, resulting in much better numbers and no side effects.

    Difficulty commencing in meds, but eventually settled down. I have been on this medication, for 12 months, after 2 months developed neuropathy, but it wasn’t considered that this may be the cause. This week after being on it for 12 months, the GP has stopped it to see if there are any change to symptoms. What I would like to know if anyone has any experience of withdrawal effects from this as I feel dreadful after being off it 5 days. Legs are like jelly, wobbly, nausea, headache, and extremely tired.

    54 YO WM, former distance runner who sustained a career ending injury, and over a 3 year period, my Cholesterol slowly climbed to an unacceptable level. 210ish (with an HDL of 75) to 290. I have a family history but still that was a scary and surprising discovery. My last Lipid panel before starting 20mg of Atorvastatin daily was: Total Cholesterol: 290; HDL: 43; LDL: 210; Non-HDL: 247; Triglycerides: 185. 8 months later after the atorvastatin, Total: 189; HDL: 47; LDL:114; Non HDL: 142; Triglycerides: 138. Zero side effects except for some weight gain that I can’t totally pin back to the medication, and my Doc wants to up my dosage to 40MG per day to bring everything down another 25% or so, and to try to get my HDL into the 50s. Perfect drug for me.

    Started taking Atorvastatin because the Crestor I was taking previously became far too expensive for me to afford after the promotional discounts ran out and my insurance plan changed, resulting in my having to pick up the entire tab of $920 every 3 months. Atorvastatin, on the other hand, while not quite as effective, was far cheaper, at $30 per 90 days. The test results, while not nearly as good as Crestor (which was AMAZING),but are still acceptable, with some results a bit beyond the normal ranges, while with Crestor, every result was perfect. Zero side effects. Considering the very low cost of Atorvastatin, I am overall quite happy with it. Age 57. Started taking after a massive heart attack and quintuple bypass surgery.

    After a single bypass I was put on Atonvastatin in end of May. My first blood test after being on the drug was total= 147, HDL 56, LDL 70 and tri glycerides 106. I went on vacation and did not take the drug for 3 to 4 weeks – also not the best eating habits on vacation – but felt good. Then had my second test and went up total 220 – HDL 66 , LDL 133, and tri 103. Dr said to get back on the med. I only take 10mg a day but I always feel tired now that I am back on. What I don’t like is my Dr says they want my LDL down to 50 ?? To put thing in perspective – my test 9 month before surgery was total 212, HDL 57 LDL 143 tri 62 – also I am 68 and had been very active.

    Have been taking low dosage of this drug for 10 years. It’s very effective. Has lowered my cholesterol dramatically, combined with exercise and low fat diet.

    My old Doctor felt my cholesterol, while a little high, did not warrant taking a medication. He retired and the interim Dr. said she felt my numbers would be better by taking atorvastatin 10 mg daily. My numbers came down, not as far as she would like, but good enough. I had no side effects so I have stayed on it for over a year. My new Dr. ran more tests and upped my dosage to 20 mg and numbers are down close to where he feels they should be. Still no side effects. Next refill, he wants to see how 40 mg does for lowering to where he wants me to be. I’m hopeful it will work and still no side effects. After reading what some other people’s reactions to this medication, I feel pretty lucky.

    Being treated for high Cholesterol and high blood pressure, Atorvastatin is one of the drugs I have been on for over four years now. Results have been positive for me and my Doctor has lowered my prescription from forty to twenty mg per day. I take one Atorvastatin at night, since I was told that the body produce Cholesterol at night time. So to get the full benefit of the statin I take it now, once a night with my medication for high blood pressure, Amlodipine. Which is another story, but positive, anyway I am positive about Atorvastatin and would recommend it. While at the same time, I would suggest that you watch your own reaction to any medication. Mostly any medication that deals with your heart, be careful. God Bless.

    Been taking 20mg for 3 months. Zero side effects. Triglycerides were 311. Most recent blood test showed 125, which is in normal range. Good cholesterol was 23. Now is 50. Very effective drug. Sorry to all those people who are having negative side effects. Try something else and good luck. All medications work for some and not others. Telling people not to try this drug because it didn’t work for you is just plain ignorant. The world doesn’t revolve around you.
