Atorvastatin Tablets are a prescription-only medication that is used in lowering the levels of triglycerides and cholesterol in the blood. It's recommended for those who've tried to lower the levels through lifestyle changes and diet alone but to no avail. The medicine works best when you combine it with a healthy diet and exercise. You most probably will start your dose with 20mg strength of Atorvastatin per day. However, your pharmacist or GP will adjust your prescription accordingly depending on the level of your cholesterol and needs.

Description

The active ingredient in atorvastatin tablets is atorvastatin, which belongs to a class of drugs known as statins. Statins work by blocking an enzyme in the liver that is responsible for producing cholesterol. This decreases the amount of cholesterol that is available in the body and helps to lower LDL ("bad") cholesterol levels and raise HDL ("good") cholesterol levels. By reducing the amount of LDL cholesterol in the blood, atorvastatin may help to prevent heart disease, stroke, and other serious health problems. What Does Atorvastatin Treat? High cholesterol Stroke Heart attack Clogged blood vessels Thyroid disorder
