Buy Atorvastatin Online in the UK
Atorvastatin is a member of the statin class of drugs, which are used to control cholesterol (fat) levels in the body.
When a low-fat diet and lifestyle adjustments alone have failed to reduce lipids, such as cholesterol and triglycerides, in the blood, atorvastatin is used. Even if your cholesterol levels are normal, Atorvastatin can be used to lower your chance of heart disease if you are at an increased risk for it. Throughout therapy, you should stick to a typical cholesterol-lowering diet.
The manufacturer of the product supplied may vary. Please read the patient information leaflet that is provided with the product.
Your doctor will put you on a low-cholesterol diet before you begin therapy, which you ought to keep up even while taking atorvastatin.
Atorvastatin's recommended starting dose for adults is 10 mg once daily. Your doctor may increase this if required until you are taking the right dosage. The dosage will be adjusted by your doctor at intervals of four weeks or longer.
Atorvastatin should not be taken in excess of 80 mg once daily.
The atorvastatin tablet can be taken at any time of the day, with or without meals, and should be swallowed whole with a glass of water. Try to take your pill at the same time each day, though.
