Lipitor General Information

Lipitor is usually prescribed only if diet, exercise and weight loss fail to bring your cholesterol levels under control. It is important to remember that Lipitor is a supplement--not a substitute--for those other measures. To get the full benefit of the Lipitor treatment, you need to stick to the diet and exercise program prescribed by your doctor. All these efforts to keep your cholesterol levels normal are important because they may lower your risk of heart disease.

Lipitor, under the European brand name Cardyl, is manufactured by Pfizer. Lipitor comes as tablets, in multiples of 27, each containing 80 mg atorvastin.

Lipitor Dosages

You need to follow a standard cholesterol-lowering diet before starting Lipitor, and should continue following it throughout your therapy.

The recommended adult starting dose is 10 or 20 mg once a day. (The doctor may start with 40 milligrams daily if your LDL levels need to be reduced by more than 45 percent.) The doctor will check your cholesterol levels every 2 to 4 weeks and adjust the dose accordingly. The maximum recommended daily dose is 80 mg.

The recommended starting dose for children 10-17 years of age, is 10 mg once a day. The dosage may be increased after 4 weeks, as determined by the doctor, up to a maximum of 20 mg a day. Girls must be having regular menstrual cycles before starting therapy with Lipitor.

The safety and effectiveness of Lipitor in children under 10 years old or in doses greater than 20 mg a day have not been studied.

Although no specific information about Lipitor overdose is available, any medication taken in excess can have serious consequences. If you suspect an overdose of Lipitor, seek medical attention.

Lipitor Directions

Lipitor should be taken once a day, with or without food. You can take Lipitor in the morning or the evening, but should hold to the same time each day. Lipitor generally begins working within 2 weeks.

For an even greater cholesterol-lowering effect, your doctor may prescribe Lipitor along with a different kind of lipid-lowering drug such as Questran or Colestid. It is important to avoid taking the two drugs at the same time of day. Take Lipitor at least 1 hour before or 4 hours after the other drug.

If you miss a dose, take the forgotten dose as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the one you missed and go back to your regular schedule. Do not take 2 doses at the same time.

Keep Lipitor in a tightly closed container and out of reach of children. Store Lipitor at room temperature and away from excess heat and moisture.

Lipitor and Pregnancy

Developing babies need plenty of cholesterol why Lipitor, a cholesterol-lowering drug, should never be used during pregnancy. In fact, your doctor is unlikely to prescribe Lipitor if there is even a chance that you may become pregnant. If you do conceive while taking Lipitor, notify your doctor right away. Lipitor does make its way into breast milk, so you should not take the drug while breastfeeding your baby.

Lipitor and Children

The safety and effectiveness of Lipitor in children under 10 years old or in doses greater than 20 mg a day have not been studied.
