what is Atorvastatin High Cholesterol Tablets ?
Atorvastatin High Cholesterol Tablets is in a group of drugs called HMG CoA reductase inhibitors, or “statins.” Atorvastatin reduces levels of “bad” cholesterol (low-density lipoprotein, or LDL) and triglycerides in the blood while increasing levels of “good” cholesterol (high-density lipoprotein, or HDL).
In children, the usual dose is 10mg to 20mg once a day. Your doctor will use your child’s age to work out the amount of atorvastatin that’s right for them.
Your dose depends on the reason for taking it, your cholesterol levels, and what other medicines you’re taking. Ask your doctor or pharmacist for advice if you’re unsure how much to take. Don’t reduce your dose without talking to your doctor first.
If you occasionally forget to take a dose, take your next dose the next day at the usual time. Never take 2 doses at the same time. Never take extra doses.
If you often forget doses, it may help to set an alarm to remind you. You could also ask your pharmacist for advice on other ways to help you remember to take your medicine.
Like all medicines, atorvastatin can cause side effects in some people – and different statins affect people in different ways.
One rare but serious side effect is unexplained muscle aches and pains, tenderness or weakness. This can happen a few weeks or months after you first start taking this medicine.
Talk to your doctor or a pharmacist if side effects are bothering you. They may recommend trying an alternative statin.
Report any unexplained muscle aches and pains, tenderness, or weakness to a doctor straight away.
Less than 1 in 100 people may have some memory loss. Talk to your doctor or pharmacist if this side effect bothers you. It usually goes away after you stop taking the medicine.
