Side Effects: Flatulence, diarrhoea, nausea, vomiting, anorexia, xerostomia, angioedema, myalgia, rash, pruritus, alopecia, allergy, infection, chest pain.

Drug Interaction: Atorvastatin is known to interact with other drugs like alvimopan, atazanavir, boceprevir, carbamazepine, clarithromycin, cyclosporine, dronedarone, erythromycin, etravirine, ketoconazole, nefazodone. Always consult your physician for the change of dose regimen or an alternative drug of choice that may strictly be required.

Mechanism Of Action: Atorvastatin selectively and competitively inhibits the hepatic enzyme HMG-CoA reductase. As HMG-CoA reductase is responsible for converting HMG-CoA to mevalonate in the cholesterol biosynthesis pathway, this results in a subsequent decrease in hepatic cholesterol levels. Decreased hepatic cholesterol levels stimulates upregulation of hepatic LDL-C receptors which increases hepatic uptake of LDL-C and reduces serum LDL-C concentrations.
