What is atorvastatin?

  • Atorvastatin is an HMG CoA reductase inhibitor. Atorvastatin blocks the production of cholesterol (a type of fat) in the body.
  • Atorvastatin is used to reduce the amounts of LDL (bad) cholesterol, total cholesterol, triglycerides (another type of fat), and apolipoprotein B (a protein needed to make cholesterol) in your blood. Atorvastatin is also used to increase the level of HDL (good) cholesterol in your blood. These actions are important in reducing the risk of hardening of the arteries, which can lead to heart attacks, stroke, and peripheral vascular disease.
  • Atorvastatin may also be used for purposes other than those listed in this medication guide.
What should I discuss with my doctor before taking atorvastatin?
  • Do not take atorvastatin without first talking to your doctor if you have liver disease.
  • Before taking atorvastatin, tell your doctor if you
    • drink alcoholic beverages,
    • have a chronic muscular disease,
    • require major surgery, or
    • have a blood disorder.
  • You may not be able to take atorvastatin, or you may require a dosage adjustment or special monitoring during treatment if you have any of the conditions listed above.
  • Atorvastatin is in the FDA pregnancy category X. This means that atorvastatin is known to cause birth defects if it is taken during pregnancy. Do not take atorvastatin if you are pregnant or could become pregnant during treatment.

  • Take each dose with a full glass of water.
  • Atorvastatin can be taken with or without food.
  • Atorvastatin is usually taken once a day. Try to take your dose at the same time each day. Follow your doctor's instructions.
  • Your doctor may want to monitor your liver function with blood tests before starting treatment with atorvastatin, at twelve weeks after both the start of your treatment and any increase in dose, and periodically (every 6 months) thereafter. Depending on the results of these tests, your doctor can determine how much monitoring you will require.
  • Grapefruit and grapefruit juice may interact with atorvastatin. The interaction could lead to potentially dangerous effects. Discuss the use of grapefruit and grapefruit juice with your doctor.

  • Store atorvastatin at room temperature away from moisture and heat.
What happens if I miss a dose?

What happens if I overdose?
