Lipitor

Lipitor is a type of medication in the form of a tablet, taken to control and manage high cholesterol levels. Cholesterol is a naturally occurring substance that the body needs, it can be very dangerous if your body had too much of it - it can lead to a heart attack, stroke, or blood clots. Although lifestyle can often be a big factor in it, some people have naturally high cholesterol. Lipitor should only be taken once lifestyle changes like a healthy diet and increased exercise have not proved effective in sufficiently lowering cholesterol levels.

You can buy Lipitor tablets safely online from Doctor-4-U by completing our simple medical questionnaire and getting a certified prescription. It will be dispatched within 24 hours.

Buy Lipitor (Atorvastatin) tablets online

Lipitor is a type of medication taken to lower high cholesterol. It is the branded version of the drug Atorvastatin, and should only be taken alongside a healthy lifestyle and low fat diet. It contains an active ingredient which manages your body’s ability to create cholesterol. The long term health impacts of having high cholesterol can be potentially fatal, and if lifestyle changes alone haven’t worked, you may have been advised to diet a cholesterol control tablet such as Lipitor.

What is the difference between Lipitor and Atorvastatin?

Chemically speaking, Lipitor and Atorvastatin are the same drug. The only difference is that Lipitor has a brand name on it, which affects its price. There is no difference in the ingredients, side effects, dosage, and interference with other medications between the two products. Some patients do ultimately feel more comfortable sticking with the same version of a particular medication, particularly if they take it on regular occasions.

How does Lipitor work?

Lipitor contains the active ingredient atorvastatin, which belongs to a family of medicines called statins. Statins work by reducing the liver’s ability to produce cholesterol by interfering with the activity of a certain enzyme.

Lipitor should only be taken when lifestyle changes alone have not worked. Usually, a doctor will initially prescribe a low dose of this drug and then adjust it after a period of time if deemed necessary.

Is Lipitor suitable for me?

Lipitor is designed for those suffering from high cholesterol and should only be taken alongside exercise and a cholesterol-lowering diet. Even if you do have high cholesterol, that does not guarantee that Lipitor or other medicines containing atorvastatin are suitable for you. Your medical history and other medications may prevent you from safely taking Lipitor.

You should NOT take Lipitor and speak to your doctor about alternative treatment if any of the following apply to you:

  • You are allergic to atorvastatin or any of the other ingredients listed in the patient information leaflet
  • You are pregnant, breastfeeding or trying to become pregnant
  • You are a woman who is able to have children and you’re not using reliable contraception
  • You have or have previously had a disease which affects the liver
  • You have had any unexplained abnormal blood tests for liver function
  • You are taking glecaprevir and pibrentasvir to treat hepatitis C

If you have any other health conditions, then mentioned these to your doctor or local pharmacist before starting Lipitor to check that you’re still ok to use this medicine. You should also inform one of them about other medication you are currently taking or have recently used.

Certain other medicines can interact with the effects of Lipitor (making one or both of the treatments less effective). The following medicines are particularly likely to interact with Lipitor and other medicines containing atorvastatin:

  • Medicines which alter your immune system
  • Medicines used to treat HIV infection
  • Medicines used to treat hepatitis C
  • Certain antibiotics and antifungal medicines (check with your doctor or local pharmacist if you’re unsure whether Lipitor interacts with what you’re taking)
  • Certain calcium channel blockers used for angina or high blood pressure
  • Oral contraceptives
  • Antacids
  • Other medicines which regulate lipid levels
  • Letermovir
  • St. John’s Wort
  • Oral fusidic acid
  • Ezetimibe
  • Warfarin
  • Stiripentol
  • Cimetidine
  • Phenazone
  • Colchicine

What are the side effects of taking Lipitor?

Like all medications, Lipitor may have side effects, but not everyone gets them. Common side effects include:

  • Headaches
  • Constipation
  • Pain in the joints, muscles or in the back (particularly among older adults)
  • Nosebleeds and inflammation of the nasal passages
  • Pain in the throat
  • Nausea
  • Constipation, trapped wind, indigestion and diarrhoea
  • Blood tests which show your liver function could provide abnormal results

Other side effects are possible but also rare. You are unlikely to experience any serious side effects that require medical attention, but do not hesitate to go to a doctor or hospital emergency department if you do get any serious symptoms after using Liptor.

How do I take Lipitor tablets?

The recommended starting dose of Lipitor is one 10mg tablet a day, taken at roughly the same time of day each day. Your doctor may choose to up your dose if there is no clear improvement, up to a maximum dosage of 80mg a day. Do not exceed the maximum dose.

Lipitor tablets are swallowed whole with a drink of water and they can be taken with or without food. The duration of treatment with Lipitor is determined by your doctor.

Do you require a prescription for Lipitor?

A prescription is required from a GMC/EU certified doctor in order to buy Lipitor tablets online. With Doctor-4-U’s easy consultation process, you can get a prescription for Lipitor safely and quickly. Before confirming your order, you will need to fill out a short medical questionnaire provided. If you are deemed suitable for your prescription, it will usually be dispatched within 24 hours.

How is my order shipped to me?
