What Is Lipitor Used For?
Lipitor is a medication that contains atorvastatin calcium. Lipitor is used in a variety of patients, including adults without coronary heart disease who have certain risk factors for coronary heart disease, certain patients with type 2 diabetes, and patients with clinically evident coronary heart disease. Lipitor is also frequently used in patients with hypercholesterolemia to reduce elevated total-C, LDL-C, apo B, and TG levels and to increase HDL-C, in patients with high triglyceride levels in the serum, and various other situations. Lipitor is an inhibitor of 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl-coenzyme A (HMG-CoA) reductase (i.e. statins) and is also similar to Livalo, rosuvastatin (Crestor) and simvastatin. Before using Lipitor tablets and while using Lipitor, patients should utilize a cholesterol-lowering diet.
Lipitor Generic - Dosage and Cost
Lipitor regimens are often started at Lipitor 10 mg daily although some medical providers may choose to prescribe Lipitor 20 mg daily in some circumstances. The Lipitor dose is generally adjusted in response to LDL-C levels. Lipitor dosage adjustments usually do not need to be made for people with renal insufficiency. Lipitor prescription medication is sometimes used concomitantly with bile acid binding resins but should not be used with fibrate medications. Branded Lipitor tablets are expensive, costing as much as $15 per Lipitor 40 mg tablet. Lipitor coupons may be available online from the manufacturer or other sources. Some insurance plans will cover the costs associated with a Lipitor prescription. Lipitor is available as Lipitor 10 mg, Lipitor 20 mg, Lipitor 40 mg and Lipitor 80 mg tablets. Lipitor tablets should be stored between 20° C and 25° C.
Can I Buy Lipitor Online?
Lipitor is a prescription medication in the United States and cannot be dispensed as Lipitor OTC (over-the counter) at pharmacies. Because of this, one cannot just buy Lipitor online without first consulting with a medical provider.
