What is Atorvastatin?
Atorvastatin is a drug for lowering cholesterol levels. The drug is taken daily and usually over a long period of time. The drug inhibits the formation of endogenous cholesterol in the liver. It is a useful supplement to cholesterol prevention in the diet.People with high cholesterol levels are at a higher risk of arteriosclerosis, which can lead to coronary heart disease, including stroke. Atorvastatin is a drug that successfully reduces the body’s production of cholesterol.
The consequences of too much Cholesterol in the blood
Too much cholesterol in the blood is highly damaging to our health. Although cholesterol is actually a vital substance, this natural substance can develop a harmful effect because of poor nutrition. In order to improve bad cholesterol levels, one can change the diet – and reduce the body’s own cholesterol production using the appropriate medication.
Different types of Cholesterol
There are different types of cholesterol. It is vital to lower the “bad” type called LDL and the triglycerides that your body stores in fat cells. On the other hand, you want to increase your “good” (HDL) cholesterol which helps to get rid of the bad type.
When does cholesterol become harmful?
As with so many things, the amount of a substance determines whether it is positive or negative for our body. And with cholesterol this is especially the case. If there is too much cholesterol in the blood, it means that the receptors of the cells that normally pick it up, fail to filter out enough cholesterol from the blood. It should be noted that there are two types of cholesterol, HDL and LDL cholesterol. While HDL cholesterol has no negative effects on our body, the value of LDL cholesterol should not be too high, as it can cause the well-known devastating after-effects.
The effect of Atorvastatin
The mode of action of the cholesterol-lowering agent is a mechanism that takes place in the highly complicated process of cholesterol production in the liver. This ensures that the liver eventually produces less cholesterol. The active ingredient of the drug is statin. Atorvastatin inhibits the enzyme HMG-CoA reductase. This mainly reduces the production of LDL cholesterol, which can lead to arteriosclerosis. HDL cholesterol, which is not harmful, will be affected less by the effect. In some cases, its production may even increase which is the even more positive effect of this drug.
The drug is used when the cholesterol levels are very high, and cannot be significantly reduced by a diet, through exercise and weight loss. The cholesterol-lowering agent is usually taken over a long period, since the effect unfolds in the long term as levels of cholesterol in the blood change only over a long period.
In most cases, a daily dose of 10 to 80 milligrams is prescribed. The drug is taken in the form of tablets and in the evening.
Atorvastatin is a drug with relatively few side effects – which makes it very safe to use.
However, the following side effects may occur occasionally :
⇒ Levels of other enzymes might change in the liver
⇒ Muscle pain
Pregnant women and children under 10 years should not take Atorvastatin.
If any of the above or other side effects occur, tell your doctor immediately. Read the leaflet for detailed information on the side effects, contraindications and drug interactions.
Interactions and Contra-indications
Interactions can occur if you are taking the drug with an anticoagulant at the same time.
⇒ Taking Digoxin for heart failure
⇒ Taking the pill with the hormones Norethisterone and Ethinylestradiol.
⇒ Together with Danazol or Fibrates and Nicotinic acid it suppresses the immune system.
⇒ There is a particular risk of concomitant use of atorvastatin with Ciclosporin.
⇒ Atorvastatin should not be taken in conjunction with certain antibiotics, such as Erythromycin, Clarithromycin, and Fusidic acid.
⇒ Also, in the case of Atorvastatin therapy, the consumption of grapefruit should be avoided altogether, since this fruit can dramatically increase the effect of the drug. The consequence is an increased occurrence of the corresponding side effects.
