Lipitor general information

What is Lipitor used for?

Lipitor tablets 10mg are used to treat primary hypercholesterolaemia (high total cholesterol and triglycerides) and mixed dyslipidaemia (either elevated cholesterol or triglycerides) to lower high levels of cholesterol and other fats (triglycerides) in the blood to reduce risk of coronary heart disease (CHD) that can be caused by high cholesterol.  There are usually no symptoms for high cholesterol, which may be due to lifestyle (high-fat diet and lack of exercise) or can be inherited (familial hypercholesterolaemia).  Lipitor tablets 10mg are used in the absence of symptoms in conjunction with a low-fat diet, if diet alone is not sufficient to lower cholesterol levels.  Lipitor 10 is also used to prevent cardiovascular disease and the progression of CHD, if symptoms are already present; also if risk factors for CHD are present including high blood pressure, diabetes, peripheral vascular disease, or history of stroke, to reduce the risk of stroke, angina or heart attack.  

How does Lipitor work?

Lipitor tablets 10mg contain atorvastatin which belongs to a group of cholesterol-lowing medications called statins that is used to treat hypercholesterolaemia to lower high cholesterol levels in the blood.  Cholesterol is needed by the body for many functions such as building cell membranes, producing certain hormones and transporting fat soluble vitamins around the body.  However, if there is more cholesterol than the body needs, it becomes deposited in the artery walls where it can build up, blocking the arteries and causing hardened areas called plaque, which increases risk of heart disease.  Atorvastatin in Lipitor-10 reduces the production of cholesterol by the liver by inhibiting HMG-CoA reductase, an important enzyme involved in cholesterol synthesis.  Cholesterol is released into the blood as low density lipoprotein (LDL-C) to distribute cholesterol around the body; high density lipoprotein (HDL-C) picks up excess cholesterol from the arteries and returns it to the liver to be disposed of or re-used.  Atorvastatin in Lipitor-10 lowers levels of LDL-C, which is known as the “bad” cholesterol as it can cause blocked arteries, and also increases levels of HDL-C, which is known as the “good” cholesterol (HDL) that helps unblock hardened arteries.  Lipitor-10 only inhibits production of cholesterol that is synthesised in the liver and has no effect on cholesterol that comes from fat in food, which is why a low-fat diet is important even when you are taking Lipitor-10.
