Lipitor 40 mg

Lipitor® (atorvastatin calcium) is a prescription drug approved for treating high cholesterol and high triglycerides. Lipitor tablets are available in four different strengths, including:
  • Lipitor 10 mg
  • Lipitor 20 mg
  • Lipitor 40 mg
  • Lipitor 80 mg.
Although the recommended starting Lipitor dosage for most people with high cholesterol is 10 mg to 20 mg once a day, some people may start on Lipitor 40 mg if they require a large drop in their cholesterol numbers.
After several weeks, your healthcare provider may recommend that you have your cholesterol levels checked once again and increase your Lipitor dose as necessary to reach your cholesterol goal.
In clinical studies, muscle pain was a side effect that was commonly reported in people taking Lipitor.
