If you have high cholesterol or high triglycerides, your healthcare provider may prescribe Lipitor® (atorvastatin calcium). This prescription medication is also approved to prevent heart and blood vessel disease. As part of a class of drugs known as statin medications, Lipitor works by blocking a particular enzyme, called HMG-CoA reductase, that controls the rate of cholesterol production in the body. This medication comes in tablet form, and is usually taken once a day. Seek immediate medical attention if you overdose on Lipitor.
