What is Lipitor used for?

What you should know about using Lipitor for high cholesterol


Lipitor, generic name atorvastatin calcium trihydrate, is a useful statin for controlling cholesterol levels within the body. For people whose cholesterol is too high, who are overweight, who have heart disease or who are at risk of any of these conditions, the drug can help reduce their risk levels and return them to a healthy state over time.

Your body contains two significant kinds of cholesterols - the unhealthy cholesterol, LDL, and the healthy cholesterol HDL. While you do need a little bit of both, too many people have far too much LDL cholesterol. With excess amounts of this cholesterol, blood vessels can start to clog up, and their heart may have trouble pumping blood throughout the body.

A person with too much LDL cholesterol will be at risk of several cardiovascular diseases, may have high blood pressure and may be suffering from some form of diabetes. By introducing the statin Lipitor into the body, HDL levels can start to increase. These two types of cholesterol are at odds with one another, so as one increases, the other decreases.

Lipitor can force the body to do what may take hundreds of hours of exercising and a strict dieting regimen to accomplish, and it can do it over a few weeks. It can certainly be helpful to keep an active lifestyle and eat healthily while on this drug, but it manages to do a great deal of the work on its own. It is essential for treating people who are at high risk and who need help right away. While lifestyle changes are certainly a good measure to take and a necessary part of maintaining healthy cholesterol levels, they may not act fast enough for many people to get the help they need.
