Uses
Lipitor (Atorvastatin Calcium) belongs to a group of medicines called statins. When used in combination with an exercise regime, healthy diet and a weight loss program (if the patient is overweight), it is effective at controlling cholesterol levels, and can reduce the risk of strokes or heart attacks. This drug works by blocking a certain enzyme in the liver, which leads to a drop in the amount of LDL (low density lipoprotein, also known as bad cholesterol in the blood. It also increases the amount of good cholesterol (HDL or high density lipoprotein), a type of cholesterol which can help to prevent clogging of the arteries.

Dosage and Administration
The exact dosage required by patients using Lipitor (Atorvastatin Calcium) to control cholesterol levels can vary greatly, and may need to be adjusted from time to time by the prescribing doctor. A medical check up will be required by your doctor before prescribing this medicine. In some cases, adults treating hyperlipidaemia are prescribed an initial dose which can range from 10mg to 40mg per day. A 40mg dose is usually prescribed for patients requiring a 45% or more reduction in LDL levels. The prescribing doctor may adjust the dosage at 2 to 4 week intervals, and the maintenance dose ranges from 10mg to 80mg, taken once per day.
