Liptor is an effective treatment for high cholesterol that has been clinical proven to prevent related cardiovascular conditions including heart attack and stroke. Liptor is the brand name for the treatment Atorvastatin which belongs to a group of medications known as statins.
Lipitor belongs to a group of drugs called HMG CoA reductase inhibitors. This medication has the ability to reduce the levels of bad cholesterol and triglycerides in the blood, at the same time increasing the levels of good cholesterol. You can buy Liptor online at euroclinix without having to visit your doctor to obtain a prescription
If you suffer from high cholesterol, you could be at risk of serious health conditions such as heart disease, angina, blood clots and stroke – even if you do not notice any symptoms. Some patients can lower their levels by simply adopting certain lifestyle changes such as a low cholesterol diet and regular exercise. However, in some cases statin medications such as Lipitor are necessary to reduce cholesterol or triglyceride levels, and can improve the life expectancy of many patients.
The active ingredient in Liptor is called atorvastatin calcium. This is a type of statin which will stop the enzyme HMG-CoA reductase from producing levels of bad cholesterol in the liver. When cholesterol is formed it is then transported around the body via the blood stream, but in high levels can form a hard plaque that can stop the blood pumping around the body as it should. As Liptor is absorbed into your body as well as reducing the production of bad cholesterol it is also able to reduce the amount currently present in the blood. It is usually prescribed on a long term basis even after levels are satisfactory to maintain health cholesterol levels. The lowest dose is prescribed first and increased only if the bad cholesterol levels have not improved significantly by the time they are next tested.
Statins such as Lipitor work by limiting the ability of the enzymes which produce "bad" cholesterol (LDL) in the liver. By reducing the amount of "bad" cholesterol, the body will work to produce "good" cholesterol (HDL), which helps to create blood cells and hormones but does not stick in the arteries and strain the heart.
Before you take Liptor high cholesterol treatment you should read the instructions enclosed or download them at the bottom of this page. This will give you comprehensive instructions and information regarding the treatment. To take Liptor you should:
Take one tablet each day around the same time
You should also make sure to avoid consuming grapefruit at the same time as you take statins, as the fruit has properties which could limit the effects of Lipitor. You should also not mix the medication with large quantities of alcohol. Your doctor will prescribe the best dosage for you, as it is available in film-coated tablets of 10mg, 20mg, 40mg and 80mg.
If you miss a dose for any reason, you should take the missed dose as soon as possible. It is advised that you skip the missed dose if your next is less than 12 hours away. It is essential that you do not take extra medicine to make up your missed dose, as this will not boost the effectiveness of the process and may cause harm to the body as a result of an overdose.
All prescription medication can cause some side effects, but they are relatively rare and often pass after the body adapts to the ingredients.

Some of the symptoms of an allergic reaction include swelling of the face or severe skin rashes.
