SALT INFORMATION

Atorvastatin(10 mg)

TYPICAL USAGE

Atorvastatin is used to treat patients with elevated cholesterol, triglyceride or lipoprotein levels in blood, and to reduce the risk of heart diseases, even when blood cholesterol is normal.

SIDE EFFECTS

The common side effects are nose and throat infection, throat pain, nose-bleed, allergic reactions, increase in blood glucose level, gastro-intestinal disturbances like urge to vomit, constipation, indigestion, diarrhea and excessive passage of wind or gas, muscle wasting condition (rhabdomyolysis), elevation of enzymes like blood creatine kinase and liver enzymes.

DRUG INTERACTION

Atorvastatin is known to interact with other drugs like gemfibrozil (increased risk of rhabdomyolysis), antibiotics and anti-fungal medicines, amprenavir, cimetidine, colestipol, cyclosporin, digoxin, warfarin, and oral contraceptives, where atorvastatin may affect the action of these drugs or vice versa. 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 blocks the action of the enzyme (HMG-CoA reductase) that is required for the production of cholesterol in the body. It thus lowers the level of blood lipids such as cholesterol and triglycerides.
