Uses
Lipitor (Atorvastatin Calcium) belongs to a group of medications referred to as HMG CoA reductase inhibitors (these drugs are sometimes called statins). Patients that are overweight, who suffer from high cholesterol levels, diabetic patients or any other patients considered to be in the risk category are treated with this medication, to help reduce the risk of heart attacks, strokes or any other severe complications. Together with a healthy diet and regular exercise, it can reduce the amounts of LDL (low density lipoprotein, sometimes called bad cholesetrol), while also increasing the levels of high density lipoprotein (HDL, sometimes called good cholesterol).

Dosage and Administration
When you visit your doctor for a medical check up, he or she will tell you how much Lipitor (Atorvastatin Calcium) you need to take. Adults preventing cardiovascular disease may be told to take 10mg to 80mg per day, with the exact amount being decided by the prescribing doctor. Dosage adjustments may be required every 2 to 4 weeks if your doctor deems it necessary. If your doctor has prescribed this medicine for you to treat hyperlipidaemia, you may be told to start out on either 10mg, 20mg or 40mg per day, with dosage adjustments every 2 to 4 weeks (at the discretion of your doctor).
