Atorvatin contains Atorvastatin Calcium.

Product Overview

Atorvatin is a medication containing the active ingredient Atorvastatin Calcium. It is formulated as a tablet for oral administration. Atorvatin belongs to a class of drugs known as statins, which are commonly prescribed to lower cholesterol levels in the blood. By inhibiting an enzyme in the liver involved in the production of cholesterol, Atorvatin helps to reduce the levels of “bad” LDL cholesterol and triglycerides while increasing the levels of “good” HDL cholesterol, thereby lowering the risk of heart disease and stroke.


Atorvatin is used to treat high cholesterol levels in the blood, a condition known as hypercholesterolemia. It is also prescribed to lower the risk of heart attack, stroke, and other complications in patients with coronary artery disease, diabetes, or other risk factors for cardiovascular disease. Additionally, Atorvatin may be prescribed as part of a comprehensive treatment plan to manage familial hypercholesterolemia, a genetic disorder characterized by high cholesterol levels.

How to Use

Atorvatin tablets should be taken orally with a glass of water, with or without food, as directed by your healthcare provider. It is usually taken once daily, preferably in the evening. Follow the dosage instructions provided by your doctor, and do not exceed the prescribed dose. Swallow the tablet whole without crushing, chewing, or breaking it. If you miss a dose, take it as soon as you remember. However, if it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular dosing schedule.

How it Works

Atorvatin works by inhibiting an enzyme called HMG-CoA reductase in the liver, which plays a key role in cholesterol production. By blocking this enzyme, Atorvatin reduces the synthesis of cholesterol and increases the uptake and breakdown of LDL cholesterol in the liver. This leads to a decrease in LDL cholesterol levels in the blood. Atorvatin also helps to increase the levels of HDL cholesterol, which has a protective effect against heart disease.

Dosage and Administration

The recommended dosage of Atorvatin depends on various factors such as the patient’s age, medical condition, and response to treatment. It is important to follow your doctor’s instructions regarding the dosage and duration of treatment. The usual starting dose for most adults is 10 to 20 milligrams once daily. Your doctor may adjust the dose based on your cholesterol levels and individual response to the medication. Regular monitoring of cholesterol levels and liver function may be necessary during treatment with Atorvatin.
