The Function of Lipitor
Lipitor belongs to the category of medications known as HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors or statins. It functions by slowing cholesterol production to reduce the cholesterol level that may develop on an individual’s artery walls. As a result, it helps prevent blood from flowing to the heart, brain and other parts of the body.
What Does Lipitor Treat?
Lipitor is used in combination with weight loss, exercise, and diet to reduce the risk of stroke and heart attack. The medication also reduces the risk of heart injury in patients diagnosed with heart disease or in people who are at the risk of being diagnosed with heart disease.
Additionally, it decreases the amount of fatty substances, such as triglycerides and low-density lipoprotein “LDL” cholesterol or bad cholesterol, while increasing the amount of high-density “HDL” or good cholesterol in the blood.
Doctors may prescribe the medication to children and teens aged 10 to 17 years suffering from high levels of bad cholesterol and other fatty substances in their blood due to heterozygous hypercholesterolemia. Hypercholesteremia is an inherited medical condition where you cannot reduce the amounts of bad cholesterol normally from the body.
How to Use Lipitor
You may need to take one tablet by mouth once with or without food. You can take it either in the morning or at night. It is recommended that you take Lipitor at the same time each day. Your doctor may instruct you to take a low dose of Lipitor and slowly increase your dose.

How Long Will It Take for Your Cholesterol to Improve?

How Should You Store Lipitor?
You should store the medication at room temperature. Make sure to store it away from heat, light, and moisture. Always make sure you have tightly closed the medication and keep it out of reach of children. Do not put the medication in the bathroom.
What Should You Do If You Miss a Dose?
If you ever miss a dose, you should take it as soon as you remember it. You need to skip the dose if it is time for your next dose and if it is less than 12 hours away. You should never take two tablets to make up for the missed dose.
Should You Change Your Diet While Taking Lipitor?
